Winemaker Notes

This special lieu-dit sits on the border of Puligny-Montrachet and
Chassagne. In fact, it is just a stone’s throw down-slope from
Montrachet. The soils are shallower on this side of Puligny than on
the opposite.

Winemaking for Sylvie is fairly straightforward and gloriously light
handed. Whole cluster pressed and sent to barrel to ferment. Albert
Joly enjoys a very rare, very small, underground cellar. Here the
wines ferment in the painfully cold environment. This, combined with
the warmth of barrel fermentation, allows the yeast to develop an
almost Meursault-like reduction—matchstick and savory.

The Les Tremblots is full of mineral energy and high-toned aromatics
of white blossoms, marzipan, lemongrass, and green apple. There is
also just the right touch of reduction that brings a bit of flint. This
wine combines grace with a well-defined character and a
remarkable concentration
