“A strikingly elegant nose presents a broad range of yellow and white orchard fruits with ample honeysuckle, spice, lilac and citrus nuances. … notably finer and wonderfully seductive before concluding in a palate coating, saline and linear finish that possesses superb depth and length. Like the Combettes this is clearly built-to-age and while it will certainly be capable of rewarding longer-term cellaring it should be approachable after only 6 to 8 years.”
~ Allen Meadows, Burghound Rated 92-94 Points “Outstanding!”


Tasted blind at the annual “Burgfest” tasting in Bouilland. The 2013 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Folatières did not reach my estimation from when I tasted this from stainless steel vat. It has an attractive bouquet with cold stone and yellow flower scents developing with aeration. So far so good. The palate is a little shrill on the entry, tense but missing real depth and precision on the finish. This does improve with 10-15 minutes in the glass, gaining a little more tension and personality so perhaps it is simply a case of needing more time. I'll keep the faith and temper more score.
