Description

“The 2018 Puligny-Montrachet Les Folatières 1er Cru is more backward and austere on the nose compared to the domaine’s Les Referts, yet give it aeration and it develops wonderful flinty, almost Chablis-like aromas that are beautifully defined. The palate is very precise and mineral-driven with a malic core of fruit and superb depth from start to finish. This is one of the best Pulignys I have encountered from Bachelet-Monnot. Highly recommended.” 92-94 points, Neal Martin, Vinous

“Once again discreet wood can be found on the softly exotic aromas of white and yellow orchard fruit together with plenty of floral elements. There is more minerality if less seductivity to the delicious medium-bodied flavors that are also blessed with an abundance of dry extract that imparts a sappy texture to the delicious orange zest-inflected finale. This is also really quite good if clearly from a ripe vintage.” 91-93 points, Allen Meadows, Burghound

“Crisp pale lemon colour. The nose has a light but classy reduction. This is a little more austere than their Referts. The palate opens out to a lemon and peach flesh, an interesting mix of the austere and some full ripeness. Peach and fresh apricot to finish.” 91-94 points, Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy
