Out-scored DRC Corton but About 5% of the Price - Tollot-Beaut Corton-Bressandes Grand Cru 2013

December 14, 2018

An old estate in Chorney-les-Beaune dating back to 1880 which started producing and bottling their wines in early 20th Century, Domaine Toillot-Beaut scattered their footprints also in Aloxe-Corton, Corton and Beaune. Excellent wines are produced here with very good practice of oak barrels nowadays, making a modern style Burgundy wines that could show it's charm in young age but never lacking aging potential. Thanks to the domaine's friendly pricing strategy that some excellent values wines are found here, we found the domaine's Corton-Bressandes is scored as the top wine of the domaine in Vintage 2013 and decided to secure as much as we could. Allen Meadow is truly a supporter of the domaine which gives an appealing 93 pts to the wine, or if we put this with Domaine de la Romanee Conti Corton Grand Cru 2013 side-by-side, which received "only" 92pts from Allen Meadows and currently listed at 19 times the price at HK$12,900 per bottle, the Corton-Bressandes Grand Cru from Tollot-Beaut is an absolute steal -

HK$720 per bottle

93pts Allen Meadows

As is often the case this is the best wine in the range with its slightly riper liqueur-like nose that features notes of kirsch, violet, plum, smoked game and a lovely floral nuance. The mouth feel of the big but not really imposing flavors is quite sophisticated thanks to the firm but fine tannic spine that shapes the mouth coating, saline and lingering finish. This is a wine of contrasts as the backend is at once slightly austere yet naturally sweet. Note that while this should more than amply reward 12 to 15 years of cellaring it will very likely drink well young too.

 

Subject to final confirmation. Available in Early Jan 2019.
