A great Corton should resemble the hill itself in its size and impressiveness. Tollot-Beaut’s Corton Grand Cru is intense, concentrated, structured, and long. Aromas and flavors of black cherry liqueur, minerals, and herbs are complemented by vanilla and spice from aging in 50% new Burgundian pièce.
Red Burgundy might be the world’s most flexible food wine. The wine’s high acidity, medium body, medium alcohol, and low tannins make it very food-friendly. Red Burgundy, with its earthy and sometimes gamey character, is a classic partner to roasted game birds, grilled duck breast, and dishes that feature mushrooms, black truffles, or are rich in umami.
