2012 Domaine Tollot-Beaut Bourgogne Rouge

SKU #1203599 Allen Meadows - Burghound

 *Outstanding Top Value* An exceptionally fresh and very pretty array of liqueur-like red berry fruit aromas is cut with earth and soft spice hints. There is very fine volume to the delicious, round and succulent flavors that possess a seductively textured mouth feel before terminating in a clean, dry and highly complex finish. This is excellent for its level and recommended.  (4/2014)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2012 Bourgogne Rouge has a fragrant bouquet with brambly red berry fruit. The palate is rounded on the entry with sappy red berries and a touch of bergamot... there is plenty to enjoy here. (NM)  (12/2013)


 The 2012 Bourgogne is a very pretty wine at its level. Delicate and floral on the palate, the 2012 is an excellent choice for drinking now and over the next few years. Sweet red berries, flowers and mint grace the soft, inviting finish. (AG)  (4/2015)

Wine Spectator

 Enticing cherry and raspberry aromas and flavors highlight this juicy red. Firm, yet enjoyable now, with moderate length. Drink now through 2020.  (6/2015)

This wine is on the higher end for Bourgogne Rouge, but an excellent value for the wine inside the bottle. It outperforms many village level wines with great texture, complexity and best of all, racy red fruit. This will keep nicely over the next few years (if you can keep your hands off of it!) or make a great partner now for your roast chicken tonight!
Drink from 2015 to 2022

Additional Information:


Pinot Noir

- One of France's most legendary grapes and the grape that earned Burgundy its reputation. The parent of varietals like Pinot Gris/Grigio and Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir is blue to violet to indigo in color with relatively thin skins, and it is said to have been cultivated in France for more than 2,000 years. At its best, Pinot Noir creates elegant wines that are filled with primary red fruit aromas and flavors while young, revealing with an array of secondary characteristics like earth, smoke, violet, truffle and game with age. The varietal is also known, perhaps better than any, for its ability to translate terroir, or a sense of place. While the best Pinot Noir still comes from Burgundy, it is being produced with increasing success in cooler climates around the world. In France, it is part of the trifecta of grapes that can go into Champagne, and it is also grown in Alsace, Irancy, Jura, Savoie, Lorraine and Sancerre. Outside of France it is produced under the names Pinot Nero and Blauburgunder in Italy's mountainous regions, as Spätburgunder in Germany and as Blauburgunder in Austria. In the US, Pinot Noir has found suitable growing conditions in the cooler parts of California, including Carneros, the Russian River Valley, the Anderson Valley, the Sonoma Coast, Monterey County, the Santa Lucia Highlands and Santa Barbara County, as well as in Oregon's Willamette Valley. In recent years, New Zealand has demonstrated its ability to interpret this hard-to-grow varietal, with successful bottlings coming from careful and attentive growers in Central Otago, Martinborough and Canterbury. Chile is also an up-and-coming region for Pinot Noir, creating fresh, fruit-forward, early-drinking and affordable Pinots from the coastal Casablanca Valley and the Limari Valley.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

- The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Côte d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Côte de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Côte de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Côte Chalonnaise and the Mâconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Côte d'Or. Also include by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north. View our bestselling Burgundy.
