Xavier Monnot Puligny-Montrachet Premier Cru Les Folatieres 2018


In Stock

“The 2018 Puligny-Montrachet Les Folatieres 1er Cru comes from a single parcel in the middle of the vineyard next to Jean-Michel Chartron. It has an elegant bouquet of orange blossom, nectarine and light praline aromas that blossom in the glass. The palate is fresh and quite saline on the entry, offering notes of orange peel and tangerine and delivering modest weight in the mouth and good length. It just needs a little more mineral tension on the finish. Drinking window: 2022-2035. 89-91 points

Xavier Monnot began the harvest on 20 August and had fined the his wines the previous week of my visit. ” I did a bit more whole bunch in the reds: 20% in the bottom of the vat to add more freshness. I did the same for the 2019s,” he explained.”
