DOMAINE ALBERT JOLY

Puligny-montrachet, France

The Joly estate totals just 11 acres, all of which is in Puligny. Nearly half of their holdings are in the Bourgogne appellation, with the balance being Village-level parcels. The Puligny Village wines are separated into two lieux-dits bottlings; Les Tremblots which boarders Chassagne and one on the opposite side of the village, Les Charmes which is really a continuation of Meursault 1er Cru Les Charmes. The vines are properly matured—their plot in Les Tremblots has the oldest vines, which are about 60 years-old, much of the rest being about 40 years-old.

Sylvie Prevot-Joly took over the estate from her father Albert in 2007, and started estate bottling at that time. Working together with her brother-in-law Gilles, she still sells 80-85% of her fruit to negociants, so the production under the Joly label is quite limited. That will surely change as the reputation of the domaine starts to gather some well-deserved steam. They produce pure, classic Puligny - crisp whites with supple fruit and great energy and a purity of precision and minerality that could only come from Puligny.
