- Bzikot Puligny Montrachet 1er Cru Les Folatieres 2011 Product #27723 (In Stock)
Folatieres is Pulingy-Montrachet’s largest 1er Cru vineyard, and Sylvain’s slice of it seems to be pretty outstanding. He considers this his top wine, and I know folks who have served it blind against Leflaive's Folatieres and seen most people prefer it. The 2011 edition is simply breathtaking.
Rich, generous, aromas of ripe orchard fruits, tangerine, fresh butter, and toasted nuts get a pretty accent of chalky mineral and crushed mint. In the mouth, this envelops your palate like a great Batard Montrachet, and if the weight isn’t quite at that level, the texture – silky, creamy, deep – is very close. Rich, long, and bursting with layer after layer of fruit, nut, spice, mint and mineral flavors, this is almost too beautiful now to justify holding any for the 10+ years it deserves. A stunner.
