Domaine Tollot-Beaut

This domaine-bottling pioneer, with extensive Pinot Noir holdings, has a formidable reputation for consistency built on meticulous viticulture and cellarwork. In spite of the domaine’s signature overt, supple fruitiness and velvet-smooth tannin extraction, their wines often carry signature structure and it pays to wait longer than one might expect for the wines to deliver their full potential. These are wines that gain enormously in bouquet and complexity with proper cellaring.
