The Tollot family represents a long lineage of winegrowers dating back to the late 1880s when François Tollot began planting vineyards in Chorey-lès-Beaune. Today, cousins Nathalie, Jean-Paul, and Olivier Tollot are in charge. The wines of Tollot-Beaut are well-known for their serious but pleasing style across a range of appellations from Bourgogne to Grand Cru. A good Chorey-lès-Beaune should display aromas and flavors typical of red wines from Beaune with red fruits and flowers coupled with freshness and minerals. Tollot-Beaut is bright and perfumed with red cherries and slightly coarse tannins. This is a classic rustic red wine.
Located entirely within the appellation of Saint-Julien, the vineyard stretches in a single block over two North-South rises of Gunzian gravelly soil. In parts large and coarse and in others finer, this gravel is combined with sand or iron-rich clay depending on the plot. Today, Matthieu Bordes and Keiichi Shiina have taken over Chateau Lagrange. They have undertaken an evolution of production methods towards a greater awareness of the environment and a reduction of ecological impact on the property.
