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. Food Pairing: 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.

Penetrating aromas of black cherry, blackberry, graphite and black pepper dissolve into the supple texture of this alluring red. There is ample structure but fine balance overall, with a spice-infused aftertaste that echoes the pepper note. Temptingly approachable now, but wait if you can. Best from 2021 through 2035. 190 cases made.

The 2016 Aloxe-Corton 1er Cru Vercots is a small production not because of frost, but since half the vineyard was replanted a decade ago (it will be reintroduced into the blend starting in 2017). It has a generous bouquet with blackberry, bilberry and light seaweed scents that develops in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with plump red berry fruit laced with white pepper and sea salt, very well focused with appreciable tension on the finish. Excellent-as good as the 2015 last year.
