The 2014 Puligny Montrachet 1er Cru les Folatières was picked on September 17 and will spend 14 months in oak. It has a classy nose, perhaps more detailed and nuanced than the Meursault Genevrières with white flowers and nutmeg accompanying the citrus fruit. There is a simmering sense of energy here. The palate is saline on the entry with a hint of bitter lemon, clean and precise with a subtle marine influence towards the sustained finish. Bon vin - as they say. -- Neal Martin, Nov 2015
Soft wood frames the slightly riper array of spicy white peach, apricot and acacia blossom scents. There is once again fine mid-palate volume to the succulent and sappy medium weight plus flavors that deliver excellent length on the balanced finale. Overall this is a bit less refined than the best in the range but this is still quite an elegant effort that should age well over the medium-term.
(13.8% natural alcohol): Pale yellow. Very ripe aromas of white peach, pineapple and white flowers. Sweet and lush, in a very ripe style, with the elevated alcohol clearly contributing to the wine's texture. Doesn't offer the precision of the Morgeot but this is satisfying and long. -- Stephen Tanzer
