While Folatieres may be one of the finest Puligny Premier Cru vineyards, Les Pucelles is one of the great white wine vineyards of Burgundy. Sitting between Clavoillons and Grand Cru’s; Batard-Montrachet and Bienvenue-Batard- Montrachet. It produces a quintessential Puligny wine that has the ability to transform into a true ‘experience’ wine. The 2018 Puligny-Montrachet les Pucelles 1er Cru has an appealing bouquet of pineapple, orange pith and light wet pavement/petrichor aromas. The palate has better salinity on the entry compared to the Clavoillons, imparting more tension and energy. The finish has a "licked limestone" quality, which can only be explained if you go out and lick a piece of limestone to experience the tingling sensation. Excellent. 91-93 Points, Neal Martin, Vinous.com
