Domaine de Montille Puligny-Montrachet Les Folatieres Premier Cru 2020
Les Folatières is a remarkable cru, very fine, airy, playful but complex, floral, and spicy. A generous but tense and elongated palate which augurs well for ageing.
Displays lovely concentration of bright passionfruit and lemon peel, with a hint of spice and plenty of salty mineral notes. There is abundant tension on the palate between the crisp acidity and the admirable breadth that leads to an impressive finish. The half-hectare in Folatières is sandwiched at mid-slope between the holdings of Domaine Leflaive and Domaine Leroy in clay and limestone soils, just behind the small patch of trees here. The fruit is lightly crushed before pressing and is fermented and aged in cask, 30% new (all from the Damy cooperage). - 95pts Decanter
