Chavy-Chouet Puligny-Montrachet Premier Cru Les Folatieres
Domaine Chavy-Chouet
France - Burgundy - Puligny Montrachet Premier Cru

Les Folatieres is a .3 hectare plot located in the middle of a steep slope, with poor soil, where the bedrock can be seen peeking through. The 50-year-old vines benefit from the poor soil and good sun exposure.

Les Folatieres produces a rich, opulent and lively wine. It is charming when young with notes of yellow fruits and toasted bread, and over time becomes more airy and floral with great intensity.

2017 Chavy-Chouet Puligny-Montrachet Premier Cru Les Folatieres - 91 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"The 2017 Puligny-Montrachet Les Folatières 1er Cru has a tightly-wound bouquet with honeysuckle, orange pith and light fennel aromas that are well defined. The palate is well-balanced with good acidity, quite saline in the mouth, rather linear but with decent length. Very fine, but I would afford this a couple of years in bottle. - Neal Martin"
