How can a $50+ bottle of wine be considered good value you ask? Because it’s from Burgundy! As wine lovers know, prices for the wines of Burgundy have soared in recent years, putting many bottles out of reach even for relatively well-to-do folks. So it’s a wonderful thing that Marquis Wine Cellars carries the well priced – and delicious – wines of Domaine Tollot-Beaut. Nathalie Tollot represents the fifth generation of the Tollot family to make wine in the commune of Chorey-Les-Beaune, from family-owned vines in four communes including Chorey. The two villages level wines currently in stock at Marquis represent the essence of Burgundian Pinot Noir, with floral, fruity and earthy notes seamlessly intermingled. Allen Meadows, the preeminent wine critic for Burgundy, calls the Aloxe-Corton one of the “outstanding values” of the 2013 vintage. Snap these up while they last!
