Folatieres sits high up on the hill above Clavoillons with meagre soil. As Puligny’s largest and possibly finest Premier Cru vineyardit produces wines of ample ripeness and packed with minerality and grip. The 2018 Puligny-Montrachet les Folatières 1er Cru is a step up from les Pucelles this year in terms of terroir expression and mineralité on the bouquet, which grabs the olfactory sense by its lapels and demands attention. The palate is much more elegant than I expected, with vibrant citrus fruit, but it needs a little more tension and terroir expression to show through on the finish. Fine, but maybe not the best Folatières I have tasted at the domaine. 90-92 Points, Neal Martin, Vinous.com
