Jean Chartron Puligny-Montrachet 1er Folatieres’ 2011

Chardonnay from France - Burgandy
Review Date : 18-Sep-2014
Full straw-yellow with green-gold hints, pale on rim. The nose is moderately full and broad, with rich citrus, stonefruit and nutty layers and detail, revealing some oak lift, with hints of toastiness and complexing flint nuances. More up-front in expression. The palate is firm, quite solid in mouthfeel with density and concentration of stonefruit flavours, though quite dry. This has structure, texture and grip, but is very fine in expression, with a steely softness verging on austerity. The refinement wins and the phenolics carry the wine to a slender, steely finish. This has the Folatieres substance. 5-6+ years. Fruit from 0.45 ha, from vines 21 – 72 y.o., the wine aged 11 months in 30% new barrels. 18.0/20 Sep 2014 RRP $115.00
