Puligny-Montrachet Folatières Premier Cru play

Region: France / Burgundy / Côte de Beaune Premiers Crus

Puligny-Montrachet shares with its neighbor Chassagne-Montrachet some of the finest white wine vineyards in the world. This commune’s Premier Cru vineyards stretch across the upper half of the Puligny slope, from Meursault to Chassagne. The Folatières plot lies near the summit of the slope on stony clay and chalk soil that drains well and warms easily. In winemaking, the Chardonnay grapes are fermented and matured in oak barrels for a total of 12 to 15 months.
