Florence Cholet Meursault Blanc 2020

Bright acidity and minerality emerge on the palate from this beautifully balanced and structured white, followed by subtle hints of vanilla and toasted brioche nuances in a refreshing finish.

Domaine Joseph Voillot Les Champans Volnay Premier Cru 2020

The 2020 Domaine Joseph Voillot Volnay Les Champans Premier Cru is from the domain’s largest premier cru holding, 4.2 acres whose vines date from 1934, 1971, and 1985. Champans is down-slope in the premier cru band, and its wine typically has more fruit and power than other Voillot Volnays.


Review:

The 2020 Volnay Les Champans 1er Cru, matured in 20% new oak, has an expressive and quite open, floral bouquet with red cherries, undergrowth, crushed strawberry and a touch of black tea. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, a fine bead of acidity, harmonious and poised with good substance towards the finish. This is very refined and classy.

Boussey Monthelie Rouge Premier Cru Sur La Velle 2020

Boussey Monthelie Rouge Premier Cru Sur La Velle is made from 100 percent Pinot Noir. 

The grapes for this wine are coming from the parcel located in Monthelie, on the plateau right next to Volnay. They usually produce balanced wines, with a lot of freshness and elegance. 

The wine displays aromas of red fruits, with floral notes (violet) and spice. After cellaring for a couple of years, the wine will develop some secondary aromas with truffle and forest flavors. 

Delicious with game terrine, sirloin steaks and strong cheese.

Winery: Florence Cholet

Globe-trotting winemaker Florence Cholet returned to the tiny village of Corcelles-les-Arts in the Cote d'Or area - east of Puligny Montrachet, right across Meursault - in 2019 to take over the four generation-family estate. Florence's father Christian officially founded the estate in 1976 as Domaine Christian Cholet-Pelletier, and was then joined in 1982 by his wife Anne.

Florence gained experience and worked across France, USA and Australia. She studied biology and biochemistry at the University of Burgundy, Dijon. She has a licence in viticulture and a Master degree in oenology. She also worked at an independent laboratory in Morey Saint Denis. 

As a young and ambitious winemaker, Florence changed many of the original vineyard practices, such as they no longer use pesticides or herbicides, and new oak is used sparingly. The vineyards are ploughed and since 2017 fermentations have used wild yeasts.
