WHAT THE CRITICS ARE SAYING
“A slightly fresher though still clearly ripe nose is comprised by notes of a variety of dark berries, cassis, game and a whiff of smoke. The rich, full-bodied and concentrated medium-bodied flavors also possess a relatively sleek mouthfeel, all wrapped in powerful, palate coating and very serious finale.” Burghound.com, 92pts
Les Greves is voluptuous and structured with aromas and flavors of bright red fruit and mineral notes. The flavor is intense and powerful but is delivered on the palate with finesse. Aging in 30% new Burgundian pièce brings notes of vanilla and spice. The vines were planted between 1969 and 1987.
The Tollot family represents a long lineage of winegrowers dating back to the late 1880s when François Tollot began planting vineyards in Chorey-lès-Beaune. His son, Alexandre Tollot, continued in his father’s footsteps and married Aurélie Beaut. In 1921, Tollot-Beaut became one of the first to bottle their wines under the Domaine and started exporting their wines to the U.S. shortly thereafter. Today, cousins Nathalie, Jean-Paul, and Olivier Tollot are in charge. The wines of Tollot-Beaut are well-known for their serious but pleasing style across a range of appellations from Bourgogne to Grand Cru.
