Description

"Folatières" comes from the old French "Foletière", a place haunted by goblins, legendary creatures, and leprechauns with liveliness and grace. It typically conjures up a vision of dancing wisps. The vineyard is large and hardly homogenous. We have the privilege of a single parcel of 0.52 hectares located in the heart of the cru, at mid-slope, and with two prestigious neighbours on each side (Domaines Leflaive and Leroy.)

With the quality of this terroir, part limestone, part clay, we believe this is one of the three best Premier Crus of Puligny along with "Le Cailleret" and "Les Pucelles". It merits a placement among the "Great Premier Crus", those that rival the Grand Crus.

It is a remarkable cru – fine, airy, playful yet complex, floral, and spicy. Its mouthfeel is generous but structured and lengthy, which indicates a long aging potential.

Pale primrose. Lovely dense aromatic nose, a very good weight of full, more white than yellow, fruit, with waves of flavour across the palate. I love the balance of this wine albeit in its richer style, with a very satisfying long finish.

Review

A half-hectare was acquired by the Château de Puligny-Montrachet from Charton in 1993, in a couple of separate parcels, all near Chevalier. The wine is rich and spicy, with aromas of ripe apple and citrus on the attack, then marzipan and butter on the palate. The texture is broad but still balanced by fresh acidity that carries this to a beautiful, lingering finish. Drinking Window 2024 - 2039
