2013 Domaine Tollot-Beaut Corton Grand Cru

SKU #1500014 92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark This is quite densely fruited with an unusually expressive mélange of violet, plum, red and black currant, tea and plenty of earth elements. There is very fine volume and plenty of power to the reasonably well-detailed and muscular flavors that delivers outstanding length on the youthfully austere and saline suffused finish. While I envision that markedly more depth will develop there is enough underlying material present that if it does then my predicted score may very well be too conservative as this is very good. Drink: 2023+ Inner quote mark (4/2015)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A fluid, polished red, delivering black cherry, black currant and chalky, mineral notes. Tight and reticent on the finish, where this shows fine length and freshness. Best from 2019 through 2032. (BS) Inner quote mark (5/2016)

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Nathalie Tollot told me that they lost around one-quarter of the 2013 Corton Grand Cru because of hail. It has quite a strong oak influence on the nose, although Nathalie Tollot suggested that it was accentuated by the low temperatures in the cellar. The palate is nicely balanced with supple tannins and a keen thread of acidity. The oak is more “contained” here and there is fine mineral presence on the taut finish. (NM) Inner quote mark (1/2015)

Vinous

Outer quote mark Medium red. Fresh, dark aroma of cassis. Ripe but not overripe, showing a touch of sweetness from the 50% new oak. Nicely round but given lift and inner-mouth tension by sound acidity. Dark fruit and saline mineral flavors show a medicinal reserve. Finishes with a firm dusting of tannins and licorice and floral accents. This grand cru should gain in complexity with time in bottle. Nathalie Tollot noted that this is always a broader-shouldered style than the Bressandes. (ST) Inner quote mark (3/2016)
