Olivier Leflaive

Without a doubt, Folatiere is the best known terroir in Puligny-Montrachet due to its larger surface area. A number of well-known domaines offer some Folatières. The soils are deeper and richer in clay and the exposure is in line with Chevalier-Montrachet. The wines are richer and fatter than elsewhere in the village (except for the grand crus themselves). The name of the terroir maybe derived from folles terres, loose or "crazy" earth which is prone to erosion.

Burghound

An airy, even perfumed nose of flowers, lemon peel and ripe peach merges into exceptionally pure and racy middle weight flavors that are detailed, focused and persistent, all wrapped in a mineral-infused finish that possesses excellent balance. I was a bit surprised at how forward this was for a young Folatières though the agreeably dry finish tightens up quickly.

Score: 91. —Allen Meadows, January 2007.
