Folatières Premier Cru
- The central part of the Côte de Beaune comprises an area predestined to produce great white wines, and Puligny-Montrachet is certainly one of its most glorious examples.
- Among its Premier Crus, the vineyard of Les Folatières is one of its most famous, occupying a central position at mid-slope.
- The name Folatières may come from “feu follet”in French, (St. Elmo’s Fire).
- According to popular imagination, these fires could be seen on a warm summer night in the forests nearby or coming up from the valley below.
- The soil is limestone and is very chalky and stony. A great part is actually limestone debris.
GRAPE VARIETY: 100% Chardonnay FOOD PAIRINGS: Like all great white wines, Puligny-Montrachet Folatières deserves to accompany the best fish and shellfish dishes, such as lobster or crabmeat in a light wine sauce, salmon, trout or Dover sole simply grilled or poached. The wine should be served no colder than 13°C (57°F). TASTING NOTES: “Beautiful harmony defines this precious wine. Golden and bright color. The complex and distinctive aromas of Puligny are here in evidence: honey, honeysuckle, fresh almond. As the wine matures, these aromas evolve towards dried fruit notes and spice. On the palate, a very nice balance between freshness and velvety texture. There is even a firm backbone that gives this wine a strong structure. Exceptionally long on the aftertaste, with refined and floral notes throughout.” – Véronique Boss-Drouhin
