Other Reviews....
A slightly riper though still noticeably cool nose features notes of lemon confit, essence of pear and apple compote with pretty floral wisps. The mouthfeel of the markedly stony medium-bodied flavors possess a real contrast between the relatively supple mid-palate and the powerful, serious and citrus rind and quinine-inflected finish that is quite dry but not really austere. This too is very promising.

Allen Meadows - Burghound

The 2018 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Folatières is another of the more immediate, charming wines in the range, offering up notes of crisp orchard fruit, white peach, clear honey, almond paste and white flowers. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and elegantly enveloping, it's bright and fleshy, with a giving, seductive personality.

Light clean pale primrose, a little more sweetness of fruit, tension too, then fills out the middle palate, huge density at the back and a lovely touch of spice and sandalwood. For all that I enjoyed the Clavoillon, this Folatières clearly displays greater concentration.
