Florence Cholet returned to run the domaine that has been in the family for four generations. Florence learnt her trade across France, the US and Australia, where she was perfecting her skills that she learnt during her degree in Burgundy. She is a very ambitious winemaker and has change many of the original vineyard practices, such as they no longer use pesticides or herbicides, and since 2016 they have been using wild years with light filtration. She limits the amount of new oak to 25%, and her wines are just brilliant with good texture and tension, which balances our the Puligny's drive with succulent fruit.

The 2016 Puligny comes from three plots, Enseignères (85 yr old vines below Bâtard), Levron and Rouselle, all well regarded village sites. Harvested by hand, the grapes are whole bunch pressed and barrel fermented. The 2016 had around 20% new oak.
