A vineyard favoured by those that adore airy, structured and skeletal White Burgundy. At a 15% gradient, erosion has created a terroir that sits on bony rocks and limestone with a wine to match. Wood frame and puppy fat/lemonade that is subdued but controls the apparent high-toned fruit trying to lift through the glass. Plenty of underlying sweet spice. The palate is unctuous, aggressively structured and seemingly lasting forever in the mouth. Far lighter on its feet than the nose lets on. A wine for the cellar, even if just for a year or two as a minimum please! -Jono Hersey, FWC Note: from Au Chaniot, which is in my view the best of the 4 lieux-dits that make up Folatières; one barrel made. Here too moderate but not invasive wood influence sets off the cool, pure and very pretty aromas that are classic Puligny. The rich, seductively textured and overtly stony flavors possess fine mid-palate density before concluding in a bone-dry, more complex and firmer finale. This is really lovely and worth checking out. 91-94 Points, outstanding. Allen Meadows, The Burghound
