  • Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Folatières – 2007 – 93 points – The Wine Advocate

    "Ripe, faintly caramelized peach, quince preserves, citrus zest…dominate the nose and succulent, creamily-textured palate. Musky notes of narcissus and heady lily-like perfume add allure and complexity, following all the way through the finish."

  • Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Folatières – 2007 – 90-92 points –

    "… primary notes of lemon peel and rose petal with spiced pear nuances…pure, racy, intense and strikingly detailed medium-bodied flavors brimming with an almost pungent minerality on the explosive, complex and driving finish."
