Les Folatières is the largest First Growth in Puligny, with several sub-sections. This wine comes from one of the most ideally situated, called “en la Richarde” planted in 1983. It lies on the same contour as the Grand Cru Chevalier-Montrachet, which is just to its south. In colour, this is very clear, green-golden, with lavish aromas from fully-ripened grapes, appetisingly crisp. It is a broadly-built wine, with luscious fruitiness, creamy texture and elegant, well-balanced aftertaste (for drinking 2017-2024+).
