The careful study and delineation of Burgundy's vineyards over centuries mean there are secret cuvées to be had if you look close enough. Florence Cholet's Les Enseignères is precisely one of those wines whose magic is realized when you learn about this lieu dit's special real estate.

Puligny's Les Enseignères is located at the foot of Grand Cru Bâtard-Montrachet. As one can imagine, this site imbues the power and richness that Bâtard-Montrachet is famous for while still showcasing loads of saline-drenched minerality and verve. Truly a Puligny-Montrachet that delivers the regal frame and layered depth that's made it the most prized village for Chardonnay on the planet. Also, the Bourgogne Blanc is a new addition for us, sourced from Puligny-Montrachet and Meursault-adjacent vines.

2019 marks the domaine's transition from Christian Cholet-Pelletier to his daughter Florence Cholet. The winemaking at this four-generation domaine is traditional with a real focus on the vineyards. Neutral and second-year barrels are used for aging to minimize new oak influence. After one year in wood, the wine is moved to tank prior to bottling to ensure tension and structure remain highlighted.

I was fortunate enough to work alongside the Cholet-Pelletier family at various points during the 2012 growing season before my time at Domaine Dujac. It was at this domaine that I was introduced to Bernard Boisson. Like Boisson, these wines are produced in minuscule quantities. I've gone deep on the 2019 vintage, and there's no wine I've devoted more cellar space to than today's ultimate insider bottling.
