Tollot-Beaut's Les Vercots 1er Cru is rustic and robust with aromas and flavors of red cherries, spice, and earth with substantial weight and ripe tannins. It is aged for 18 months 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.

Though delicate, with red fruit flavors of strawberry, cherry and currant, plus floral, vegetal and spice notes, this is intense and focused. A firm underpinning of acidity, tannins and stone lend austerity now, but this should have the ability to age. Best from 2023 through 2040.

The 2017 Aloxe-Corton Les Vercots 1er Cru comes from relatively young vines, half 12 years old and the other half debuting with their third leaf. There is a slight reduction on the nose, along with oaky red berry fruit (50% new wood) that will need time to be fully subsumed. The palate is medium-bodied with a smooth texture and fine tannin, and the wood is simpatico with the fruit. I like the grip of this Les Vercots and the tang of orange peel and marmalade that complements the red fruit on the finish. Excellent.
