RATINGS

92Wine Spectator

Toasty, with a lively structure and lime, apple and melon flavors. Good zip keeps this focused through the finish. The fine lime and spice aftertaste lingers.

REGION

France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Beaune, Puligny-Montrachet, Les Folatieres

Les Folatieres is a 43-acre Premier Cru vineyard in the appellation of Puligny-Montrachet, in Burgundy’s Cote de Beaune. It is nearly in the center of the Premier Crus and is the largest Premier Cru in Puligny-Montrachet. Burgundy writer Clive Coates has written that “Les Folatieres is a fullish, meaty, mineral wine with plenty of weight of fruit and good grip – a typical Puligny premier cru in fact.”

TYPE

White Wine, Chardonnay, 1er (Premier) Cru

This white variety originated in Burgundy, but is now grown around the world. Its flexibility to thrive in many regions translates to wide flavor profile in the market. Chardonnay is commonly used in making Champagne and sparkling wines.
