Tasting Note

A complex yet vibrant Premier Cru Burgundy that marries bright, zesty citric nuances with mineral, herbaceous and spice character, all wrapped in extremely fine oak. One of Puligny’s three finest Premier Crus: the name 'Folatières' comes from the Old French word for a place haunted by goblins, sprites and other mythical creatures.

The harvest is carried out by hand, and the winemaking is traditional. After pressing, the must is cooled and decanted 24 hours later. The wine is then left in oak barrels for fermentation with regular bâtonnage. Filtering and bottling are done after 4 months.

Food Recommendation

The wine can be enjoyed with a broad variety of dishes from delicately flavoured fish dishes through to chicken and pork.


  • 17/20 - Again a light note of struck match as well as an attractive stony minerality. Tight and refined, very long and with excellent precision. Well done.

  • 91-93/100 - The 2016 Puligny Montrachet 1er Cru les Folatieres has a more conspicuous marine bent to the aromatics compared to the other Puligny premier crus, with oyster shells and mudflat scents filtering through the green apple aromas. The palate is well balanced with a fresh and vibrant entry. Now this is a very pretty Puligny in the making, very harmonious with traces of blackcurrant leaf and spice, fanning out as if the 2016 vintage was not beset by trials and tribulations. There is just a disarming flow about this Folatières and it should drink well for the next decade.
