The 2010 Puligny-Montrachet Les Folatières 1er Cru has an intense and quite powerful bouquet, richer than the Chavy, with scents of dried honey, wax resin, orange peel and peach skin aromas all underpinned by fine mineralité and tension. The palate is very poised and focused, delivering impressive weight and tension and sappy green apple notes mixed with Nashi pear and spices. It just stumbles a little toward the finish, where I would have liked more terroir expression, but otherwise, excellent. Tasted at Sarah Marsh’s 2010 white burgundy tasting in London.

“The attractively energetic and precise flavors reflect the ripeness of the nose as this is more generous than it usually is, indeed it is unusually forward and approachable relative to its usual restrained feel at this early stage.”

“…Aromas of pineapple, mirabelle and soft herbs. Round, rich and voluminous, with intense mid-palate fruit and lovely perfume. Finishes long and aromatic, with superb mineral lift. Wonderfully palate-staining 2010 white Burgundy...”

“The fruit is quite bold and racy, something that is only accentuated over time as the wine opens up in the glass…I imagine the richer, more exotic notes will only intensify over time, yet there is plenty of acidity to support the fruit.”
