Burghound.com Top Value Choice of the Week

Suggestion from March 17 2021

Wine: 2010 Aloxe-Corton "Les Vercots" 1er

Producer: Domaine Tollot-Beaut

Comment: A ripe essence of plum, violets and earth suffused nose gives way to impressively scaled, concentrated and powerful big-bodied flavors that possess seemingly buckets of extract that buffers the firm and robust tannic spine and imparts a velvety texture to the intense, austere and driving finish. A classic Vercots that won't win any prizes for refinement but will for sheer complexity.

Score: 91 Drink: 2018+
