Description

The 2014 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru les Folatires is much more aloof on the nose compared to the nascent les Perrires, doesn't quite get out of second gear. The palate is fresh and vibrant with a keen thread of acidity and goes some way to make up for the sulkiness of the aromatics. Especially towards the finish, where it delivers Meursault-like hazelnut and walnut notes. Give this 3-4 years in bottle and it should rise phoenix-like.
