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.
This wine pairs intensity with finesse, full-bodied richness with elegance. With aromas and flavors of white fruit, almonds and minerals, it will develop favorably in the bottle for 12 to 18 years.
