Other Reviews....
The 2020 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Clos des Folatières wafts from the glass with aromas of pear, musky peach, orange oil, white flowers and freshly baked bread. Medium to full-bodied, ample and lively, it's fleshy and textural, concluding with a long, mineral finish. This has turned out nicely. Drink 2023 - 2043.

William Kelley - Wine Advocate (Jan 2022)

The 2020 Puligny-Montrachet Clos des Folatières 1er Cru comes from heavier soils that ensures the vines do not suffer hydric stress, the vines here planted around 30 years ago. This has a more airy nose, well defined with apple blossom, touches of honeysuckle and citrus peel. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, hints of almond and orange rind, fine depth and focus with hints of apricot on the finish. This should age extremely well in bottle. Drink 2024 - 2042.

Neal Martin - Vinous

The vineyard was exchanged in a previous generation between the Chartron and Pernot families. Pale primrose. The bouquet is really stylish, a more chiselled type of Folatières, less peachy than the family domaine. Perhaps some of that is coming out now. This is spectacular with almost grand cru intensity while staying light on its feet. Very persistent and with waves of different flavours coming. 6 barrels made, try to get some!
