Product Description

Florence Cholet Meursault Blanc is made from 100 percent Chardonnay.

This classic Meursault offers expressive and complex aromas of white flower, white fruit, and herbal aromas. 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.

Pair with fresh Truffle Pasta, Beaufort Cheese, Pike Quennelles.

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.

Florence Cholet Saint-Romain Rouge Sous la Velle 2019

"Sous la Velle" takes its name from its location 'under the village' of Saint Romain. The vineyards enjoy a steep and south facing exposure, planted on marl scree with the vines taking root in the limestone and offering a beautiful minerality to the wine. The nose expresses small red and black fruits, blackcurrant, cherry, raspberry and violet. The mouth provides a rich, supple and elegant wine with a good structure, pure fruit and vibrant acidity.

After destalking the grapes, the juice, skin and pulp are put into the vat for cold maceration. It lasts from 15 to 18 days. The alcoholic fermentation will follow, lasting from 5 to 6 days. These steps may be punctuated by push-downs. Aging in oak for 12 months.

Pork Filet Mignon, Pike Perch, Tomme de Morvan Cheese.

Emilio Rojo Ribeiro Blanc 2019

Emilio Rojo Ribeiro Blanc is made from 80% Trajadura, 20% others.

Emilio Rojo is produced on the hillside facing the morning sun of the Avia Valley. The vineyard has been tirelessly worked for over 30 years and through these efforts it shaped an iconic landscape that is defined by its perfect terraces and artisanal viticulture.

Emilio Rojo has been designed to transcend time. A wine made in communion with Nature and attached to the roots of the vines that faithfully express the character of the place. Emilio Rojo is the perfect fusion of the man and the vineyard.

Emilio Rojo is a blend of different local varieties (treixadura, lado, godello, caíño blanco, albariño and torrontés) that resulted in a delicate, but tense and lively wine. A complex nose that opens with time, marked by round, citrus fruit notes and floral nuances. An energetic and elegant feel with great depth that leads to a long, full finish. An honest representation of this unique plot.

Review:

Colour: bright straw;Aroma: expressive, ripe fruit, floral, fine lees;Flavour: full-bodied, complex, long, elegant, good acidity;

Guia Penin 96 Points


2019 was the first vintage under the new ownership, a very good year with mild weather and a quiet harvest when they picked the grapes with no stress. The 2019 Emilio Rojo is a blend of all the grapes in the organically and biodynamically farmed (but not certified) vineyard—Treixadura, Godello, Albariño, Torrontés, Loureira, Caíño Blanco, Lado, etc. The grapes were picked in two passes and fermented with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel followed by 14 months in tank. It's 12.5% alcohol and has a pH of 3.42 and 6.9 grams of tartaric acid per liter (acidity). This might be released in November 2022, after almost two years in bottle. It has a strong herbal strike on the nose, spicy and nuanced, elegant and harmonious. It has great balance and a brilliant texture with fine granularity and a long, tasty, almost salty finish. 2,190 bottles and 300 magnums produced. It was bottled in December 2020. They produced less as they moved to organic viticulture, and unfortunately, there will be even less wine from 2020.

Gaja Alteni di Brassica Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Gaja Alteni di Brassica Sauvignon Blanc is made from 100 percent Sauvignon Blanc.

Fresh and floral, featuring a sleek note of white flowers: jasmine, acacia and lily. Tomato leaf, combined with sage and pink grapefruit, lead the way for a juicy display of mango, papaya and passion fruit. 

Alteni di Brassica has a powerful style and a rich bouquet. A vivid structure with bright acidity, yet it displays a mineral accent on the mid-palate. The finish is long, sweet and focused.

Review:

The 2019 Alteni di Brassica is bright, focused and full of energy. Sage, mint, tomato leaf ‘and a whole range of varietal accents lend vibrancy to this beautifully sculpted, phenolic in feel Sauvignon from the Gaja family. The 2019 was fermented and aged in a combination of steel and cask, with no racking until bottling. | especially admire the precision here.
