Puligny Montrachet, Les Folatières, 1er Cru, 2017

Tasting Note:

A fabulous blend of richness and tension. More powerful than the Garenne. Initially fleshy and sweetly scented white flower and yellow fruit characteristics but as it briskly trots across the palate it tightens and reveals an intense saltiness, focusing the wine and prolonging the finish.

Here the soil is an even mix of limestone and marne clay. Aged in 20% new oak for 12 months followed by six months in tank.
