Similar weight to the au Paupillots, but here there's an even more citrus - an extra zip of lemony freshness. Drinking range: 2022 - 2026 L&S (Oct 2020)

(this too is rarely seen as a declared example). Once again there is an abundance of floral elements adding elegance to the aromas of passion fruit, petrol and just sliced apple. There is fine richness to the more concentrated and intense flavors that flash evident power on the slightly longer and more complex finale. This is a quality Puligny villages and worth considering. Drinking range: 2024 - Rating: 89-91 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Jun 2021)
Just one 350 litre barrel. Pale lemon colour. A light passion fruit to the nose, but no need to worry about over exoticism. Generous throughout, but just the right acidity, some melon notes, which take this away from classical Puligny style, though still a most enjoyable wine. Tasted: December 2020 *** Rating: 87-90 Jasper Morris - Inside Burgundy (Dec 2020)
Jacqueline Collardot and her son Matthieu own and run this exciting 'micro-domaine' in the heart of Puligny-Montrachet. Matthieu completed his studies in 2019 and joined Jacqueline permanently, just in time for the harvest. Now they are working together we look forward to a slightly bigger production - as while she worked alone she was limited to what she could achieve all on her own, with excess grapes being sold on.
At only 2.5ha, this is an artisan project, allowing them to give unrivalled time and care to every parcel she has. Jacqueline inherited these vineyards from her father’s Domaine Thomas Pierre in 2010 after he retired and is slowly raising the profile with her incredible care and attention. Although there may not be much quantity - the quality is impeccable. These are classically shaped, bright wines that express their various Puligny terroirs perfectly. She likes a long, slow élevage on the lees, with very little new wood used. Typically the wines spend two winters in the cellar before she then bottles in line with the moon in March.
From 2020 the domaine is now organically certified.
