Florence Cholet Puligny-Montrachet 2021

This is a classic expression of Puligny-Montrachet, where the moderate influence of the oak helps to maintain the subtle floral and fruity aromas of the appellation.

Florence Cholet Auxey-Duresses Rouge Premier Cru Les Ecussaux 2021

The nose expresses a nice bouquet of black fruits, cherry and violet. The mouth provides a rich and supple wine with a good tannin structure.

Domaine Louis Jadot Le Montrachet Grand Cru 2019

Louis Jadot Montrachet Grand Cru is made from 100 percent Chardonnay. 

Le Montrachet is situated to the south of the Côte de Beaune, on both villages of Puligny Montrachet and Chassagne Montrachet (like the Batard Montrachet Grand Cru).

The terroir is extremely chalky with a lot of stones, perfectly drained and easy to overheat with south-south-eastern exposition.
The Montrachet is produced with Chardonnay

Grapes are harvested by hand and put in small cases in order not to damage the fruits. Grapes are pressed softly, they ferment in oak barrels produced by our cooperage. 1/3 are new barrels. Aging usually lasts 15 months on fine lies before bottling.

Review:

Aromas of buttered toast, honeyed peaches, white flowers and mint introduce the 2019 Montrachet Grand Cru (Maison Louis Jadot), a full-bodied, layered and enveloping wine that's satiny and sumptuous, with lively acids and fine depth at the core. While I'd give the nod to the stunning Demoiselles as Jadot's best white wine this year, this Montrachet—purchased from the Chassagne-Montrachet side, from the house's usual source—is undeniably promising.

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.
