Wine Critic Reviews:

The 2014 Puligny Montrachet 1er Cru les Folatières was picked on September 17 and will spend 14 months in oak. It has a classy nose, perhaps more detailed and nuanced than the Meursault Genevrières with white flowers and nutmeg accompanying the citrus fruit. There is a simmering sense of energy here. The palate is saline on the entry with a hint of bitter lemon, clean and precise with a subtle marine influence towards the sustained finish. Bon vin - as they say.

Chalky, mineral aromas and an element of austerity mark this elegant, compact white. Peach, lemon and baking spice flavors fade gracefully as this winds down on the long finish. Best from 2019 through 2030. 250 cases imported.

Puligny-Montrachet “Folatières”- Maison Joseph Drouhin) The Folatières from Maison Drouhin is always a consistently excellent example and this is again the case in the 2014 vintage. The lovely nose jumps from the glass in a classic blend of apple, white peach, crème patissière, chalky soil tones, acacia blossoms and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, complex and succulent on the attack, with a fine core, lovely focus and grip and a long, vibrant and complex finish. I really like the backend energy on this wine this year. (Drink between 2015-2035)

(Maison Joseph Drouhin Puligny-Montrachet "Folatières" 1er Cru White) Soft wood frames the slightly riper array of spicy white peach, apricot and acacia blossom scents. There is once again fine mid-palate volume to the succulent and sappy medium weight plus flavors that deliver excellent length on the balanced finale. Overall this is a bit less refined than the best in the range but this is still quite an elegant effort that should age well over the medium-term. (Drink starting 2021)

Burghound | 90-93 BH
Bright, light yellow. Pure scents of apple and flowers are more open and inviting than those of the Morgeot Marquis de Laguiche. (Frédéric Drouhin noted that this wine is "always gracious and pleasant, like Chablis Vaudésir.") Juicy and intense, but with a sexy touch of sweetness to its orchard fruit flavors. A lemony element emerged with air. With its gripping, mineral-tinged finish, this wine would cut through shrimp and fin fishes done with cream sauce.
