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. Just 5 barrels were made in 2018, a gorgeous wine. Colour is bright, green-golden, aromas are mouthwatering, rich and complex. Palate is broad, with silky, ripe, fresh fruitiness, and a long, vibrant finish (for drinking 2020-2027+).
