Description

Florence has two parcels of Bourgogne Blanc, Les Parties and Les Equinzes, both lying just outside the Puligny boundaries. At 13% this wine, full of juicy, fleshy white peach and grapefruit shows the rich mouthfeel and texture of the warm 2015 vintage.

About the Domaine

Well-travelled, ambitious and utterly committed to getting the best from her vineyards, Florence Cholet epitomises the younger generation in Burgundy. We are very proud to be working with her.

Florence Cholet has recently returned to take over the domaine that has been her families for four generations. Widely travelled, she has worked across France, the US and Australia, Florence is an ambitious and intelligent wine maker. The domaine no longer uses pesticides or herbicides, the vineyards are ploughed and since 2017 fermentations have used wild yeasts and the wines have been bottled with only a light filtration. New oak is used sparingly at a maximum of 25%. The wines show good texture and tension, balancing Puligny’s drive with succulent fruit. Her Enseignères bottling, from 80-year-old vines below Bâtard-Montrachet combines zippy acidity and peachy fruit with a deep saline structure; we don’t have much so make sure to get some while you can.
