Discover Burgundy Wines
More than 80% of the people in the world have heard of Burgundy since it is the name of a wine region in France, but most of us are familiar with the word since we call the popular red and white wine that the region produces Burgundy. These wines are believed to be among the best money can buy, which is why they're some of the most costly in the world. We are about to state the reasons why so many people feel this way, and before we do, we are going to give a quick overview of red and white Burgundy.
Red Burgundy is a wine that is created in the Burgundy area of eastern France using Pinot Noir grapes that are all from one vineyard. As a matter of fact, red Burgundy is a Pinot Noir, just like any other red wine. Burgundy wine, sometimes known as ""white Burgundy,"" is manufactured in Burgundy, but, as it is white, it is created with 100% Chardonnay grapes. That's all there is. Nothing too difficult, is it?
Although Burgundy has historically been regarded for producing the greatest Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, Burgundy's reputation as the world's greatest region for growing Pinot Noir and Chardonnay remains strong today.
Thus, since Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wines from other areas of the globe are really alternative names for Burgundy Pinot Noir and Burgundy Chardonnay, we now know that they are more highly esteemed than Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wines from other regions.
The uniqueness of Burgundy lies in its great effect on the vines; in particular, Burgundy is a microcosm of terroir, one of the few wine regions in the world that is fully impacted by its terroir. Terroir is a feeling of place, and it implies that when you drink a wine, you're able to thoroughly taste the location where the wine was created. Terroir, or the idea that the land from which the grapes are produced gives a distinctive characteristic that is distinctive to that single vineyard, is most simply described as the land's ability to influence the grapes' flavor.
About the Producer: Domaine Tollot-Beaut
Domaine Tollot-Beaut is Burgundy's leading winery in Choray-le-Beaut, producing mainly Pinot Noir with less Chardonnay. He has been bottling his wines since 1921 and was part of a small group of wines that became the first Burgundy wines to be bottled from imported domains into the United States in 1930, along with Armand Rousseau de Gevrey-Chambertin and Henri Gouge de Nu- Saint Georges. The property consists of 24 hectares (59 acres) in four communes: Chauray-le-Bon, Savigny-le-Bon, Beaune and Alox Corton, and extends from the Burgundy level to Corton Rouge and Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru. The property is known for a large number of old Pinot Fin vines, the original Pinot Noir clone, and has a nursery for growing clones of their vines for future planting. This helps to explain the high quality of Tollo Bo red wines from the heavier soils of Choray-le-Bon. Tolle Bo does not use fertilizers on vineyards, and vegetables are often harvested to limit yields. Grapes are hand-picked in each area. Red fruits are mostly pitted and carefully processed to avoid crushing before being placed in fermentation vats. Pumping takes place during the first two days, and the remaining eight to ten - twice a day. Domaine Tollot-Beaut is also known for its balanced use of oak, which provides additional richness without overt oak flavors. Rustic wines age from 16 to 18 months in oak barrels (without toast), around 20% in new oak barrels. This percentage increases to 60 for Grand Cru wines.
