Wine Critic Reviews for 2018 Domaine Jean Chartron Puligny Montrachet Folatieres

Wafting from the glass with a pretty bouquet of vine blossom, white peach, citrus oil and pastry cream, the 2018 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Folatières is elegantly satiny, fine-boned and precise, with a delicate core of fruit, racy acids and a long, tangy finish. This is a bright, incisive Folatières from Chartron.

Robert Parker Wine Advocate | 93 RP
(Puligny-Montrachet “Folatières”- Domaine Jean Chartron) The 2018 Folatières from Domaine Chartron is very promising and was showing a nice sense of reserve out of the blocks that augurs very well for its future development. The bouquet is a classic and very precise blend of delicious apples, pears, pastry cream, complex, chalky soil tones, vanillin oak and a topnote of apple blossoms. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and complex, with a good core of fruit, bright acids, fine focus and grip and a long, poised and vibrant finish. This is very 1992-like in profile and depth of fruit. It will be accessible right out of the blocks, but I would opt to give it at least a few years in the cellar to let those secondary layers emerge. It is a very svelte example of Folatières. (Drink between 2023-2060).

John Gilman | 92+ JG
The 2018 Puligny-Montrachet les Folatières 1er Cru has a crisp bouquet of white peach, orange pith and subtle flinty aromas that gain intensity with aeration. The palate is fresh and taut on the entry, and strict at the moment, displaying an almost Chablis-like reserve toward the finish, but you can feel the salinity lingering in the mouth long afterwards. Good potential, but it will deserve three or four years in bottle.

It's downright impossible to imagine what wine would feel and taste like had it not been for France's many, many viticultural pioneers. Fine wine is the blood of France's vigorously beating heart, and it finds itself in many aspects of French culture. With a viticultural history that dates all the way back to the 6th century BC, France now enjoys its position as the most famous and reputable wine region on the planet. If you have a burning passion for masterfully crafted, mouth-watering, mind-expanding wines, then regular visits to France are probably already in your schedule, and for a good reason.
