The central part of the Côte de Beaune comprises an area predestined to produce great white wines, and Puligny-Montrachet is certainly one of its most glorious examples. Among its Premier Crus, the vineyard of Les Folatières is one of its most famous, occupying a central position at mid-slope. The name Folatières may come from ‘feu follet’ in French, (St Elmo’s fire). According to popular imagination, these fires could be seen on a warm summer night in the forests nearby or coming up from the valley below.
Pale, green-tinged yellow. Captivating scents of white peach, citrus fruits, spices and noble Puligny herbs, lifted by a suggestion of anise. A pure, nicely balanced midweight with a very primary estery banana note and a saline nuance. Currently showing more intensity than dimension, this promising premier cru finishes slightly edgy but long.
