The 2015 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Folatières, which comes from the lieu-dit "en Richard" (though never stated on the label), offers appealing aromas of green apple, slate and a touch of blackberry leaf, gaining intensity with each swirl of the glass. The palate is crisp and fresh on the entry with a fine line of acidity. It has a sense of harmony and composure perhaps missing in the La Perriere, with impressive mineralité and tension on the finish. This comes recommended.

91-93 points, Wine Advocate (Issue # 228 - Dec 2016)

Fresh if subdued scents of citrus blossom, lime zest, quinine and white flowers. Sweet and seamless on the palate, with a thick texture nicely cut by sound acidity. With its saline minerality and floral lift, this wine is showing more terroir than vintage character, with only a touch of lichee to suggest 2015. Finishes with noteworthy building length.
