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.

Massed from multiple vineyard blocks and clones, this wine has a timeless beauty that can be inherently understood by innate human nature. Wines of this stature, much like great art, reflect the complex and compelling relationship between humanity and Earth. Expressing Autumn, S (The Sum) leads with Gala

apple, Japanese plum, gun powder, dirt, and garlic power on the nose, with barely ripe cherry on the finish. 60% whole-cluster fermentation bolsters the wine, sustaining the tannic imprint and tension that uncoils like a rattlesnake strike on the finish.

Dynamic and multilayered, with tiers of wild red berry, sandalwood and mineral laced with a hint of eucalyptus. Builds richness and tension on the way to refined tannins. Drink now through 2029. 565 cases made. — TF
