Domaine Tollot-Beaut

flagBurgundy / France

Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. There is a charred note on the nose of the Corton-Bressandes Grand Cru ‘11 that rather distracts from the broody black and red berry fruit, perhaps indicative of some barrels being excessively toasted. The palate is medium-bodied and supple on the entry, the fruit profile veering to the red side of the spectrum: cranberry, pomegranate and raspberry all interlaced with soy. There is a pleasant edginess on the finish. I would afford this grand cru another two or three years in bottle as there is potentially a good Corton here, providing that the charred tincture ebbs away. eRobertParker.com.November, 2014
