Domaine Tollot-Beaut with 24 hectares of vineyards, spreading out from its base in Chorey-lès-Beaune to Beaune and the hill of Corton. Cousins Nathalie, Jean-Paul and Olivier—descendants of the domaine's founder, François Tollot—are in charge of the sales and administration, winemaking and vineyards, respectfully.
Much of the high quality of the wines at Tollot-Beaut can be attributed to the high proportions of old vines from the Pinot Fin strain, a very old and delicate Pinot Noir variety considered the most desirable for quality. More recently, the domaine has employed a nursery to develop clones from its plant material.
This selection of the best plant material is essential for the wines from Chorey-lès-Beaune, whose soils tend to be heavy. Debudding, pruning, green harvesting and removing dormant branches are all vineyard techniques used to make the best possible wines from Chorey, whose vineyards account for one-third of the total production.
