Les Folatières is the largest First Growth in Puligny, with several sub-sections. This wine comes from one of the best situated, called “en la Richarde” planted in 1983. It lies on the same contour as the Grand Cru Chevalier-Montrachet, which is just to its south. 30% new barrels contributed to this wine’s smooth maturation in oak, which lasted until August 2020. The wine is medium-deep green-gold in colour, with flowery, fragrant aromas, no oakiness being apparent. Tasted in October, the wine was a touch backward, compared to others in the range, however its intense fruitiness was clearly to be seen, with great freshness and a long, delightfully balanced aftertaste (for drinking 2021-2028+).
