Etienne Sauzet Puligny Montrachet les Folatieres 2015
|Region||France, Burgundy, Puligny-Montrachet|
BurghoundWood and reduction render the aromas tough to assess. Otherwise there is excellent richness to the dense, sappy and almost oily flavors that despite the high ripeness, weight and volume manages to retain a relatively refined mouth feel, all wrapped in a lingering and minerally finish. Good stuff that is a bit more accessible and as such should drink well early on. 90-93
Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Folatières, which comes from the lieu-dit "en Richard" (though never stated on the label), offers appealing aromas of green apple, slate and a touch of blackberry leaf, gaining intensity with each swirl of the glass. The palate is crisp and fresh on the entry with a fine line of acidity. It has a sense of harmony and composure perhaps missing in the La Perriere, with impressive mineralité and tension on the finish. This comes recommended.
