Wine AdvocateAromas of beeswax, tangerine, yellow orchard fruit and crisp green apple introduce the 2017 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Folatières, a full-bodied, ample and voluminous wine with excellent depth at the core, succulent acids and chewy structuring extract, concluding with a long and penetrating finish. Carillon observed that this cuvée isn't far from 14% alcohol. 92-94
BurghoundA mildly exotic and more elegant nose flashes notes of mandarin orange, acacia blossom, apricot, citrus peel and gentle wood nuances. There is a notably finer and more sophisticated mouth feel to the round, caressing and juicy medium-bodied flavors that brim with sappy dry extract before terminating in a softly mineral-inflected and long finish. This could use a bit more depth but more should develop with a few years of aging. 90-92
