2019 Les Houlières Domaine Thomas-Collardot
|Sub-district||Côte de Beaune|
This is quite a light soil of sandy marl - it's not the last word in concentration, but all the character of bright minerals and appetising juicy lift is here. Drinking range: 2021 - 2026 L&S (Oct 2020)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
An even more floral nose reflects notes of acacia blossom, rose petal, citrus rind and freshly slice apple. There is good volume to the delicious and relatively generously proportioned flavors that possess a seductive mid-palate that contrasts somewhat with the mildly rustic if length finale that is almost bone-dry. Drinking range: 2024 - Rating: 88-91 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Jun 2021)
Three barrels made. Pale lemon with a light green tint. The bouquet is clean with the lightest of reductions, a little fresh yellow fruit, some biting acidity, medium length, a light biscuit touch and good length. Leaves a little bit of heat burn behind. This was the ripest of the various lieux-dits at 14.4% alcohol. Tasted: December 2020 *** Rating: 87-89 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 last year and joined Jacqueline permanently, just in time for the harvest. Once they are doing it together we look forward to a slightly bigger production - as for now she is limited to what she can achieve all on her own.
At only 2.5ha, this is an artisan project, allowing Jacqueline 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.
The domaine is now on its way to organic certification (they have been at it for three years now) and the 1er Crus are worked by horse.
