  • It is an elegant, complex wine with notes of ripe fruit, flinty minerality, brioche, and vanilla, resulting in a rich palate with a long, balanced finish.

Vinified following a philosophy of minimal intervention. The grapes were immediately pressed to preserve the quality. The must was settled for 24 hours before being
transferred by gravity to 228-litre French oak barriques where wild yeast fermentation occurred at temperatures below 23°C. The wine was matured on its
lees for 12 months in barriques from a blend of forests in Central France, with 60% new oak, 30% first use and 10% second use, without bâtonnage.

It is an elegant, complex wine with notes of ripe fruit, flinty minerality, brioche, and vanilla, resulting in a rich palate with a long, balanced finish.

Winery

‘Les Folatières’ is the largest Premier Cru vineyard in Puligny-Montrachet. This plot is the south-eastern neighbour of Le Montrachet and Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru
vineyards, and its higher eastern end reaches further up the slopes of Meursault and Saint Aubin. The vineyard, which is east-facing, benefits from the gentle morning sun, giving
the grapes time to develop complexity, while cooler overnight influences bring balancing acidity. ‘Les Folatières’ originates from a medieval term for the weather phenomenon "St Elmo fire." It refers to the lights seen in the vineyard from a distance; to this day, it is said that this light can still be seen occasionally. The vines are grown on a gentle but much-eroded slope of chalk and limestone that absorbs the warmth and reflects it onto the vines, encouraging ripening. The lack of water forces the vine to use more mineral-laden hydration deeper in the soil.
