Bright yellow. Lovely floral lift to the soft citrus and vanilla aromas. Plenty of fruit here too, but this shows better grip and lift than the Clavoillons, more life in the mouth. At once lush and energetic, and firm and long on the aftertaste. ... Stephen Tanzers IWC. A Chardonnay wine from Burgundy in France. 2009 Domaine Leflaive Puligny Montrachet les Folatieres 750ml

Winemaker's Notes:

"Pale bright yellow. Highly perfumed aromas of minerals and white flowers. Juicy, vibrant and intense, with noteworthy definition to the white peach and floral flavors. The wine's almost dusty texture conveys a strong impression of extract. This one finished its malo last December and is showing beautifully today. A time-capsule Folatieres that should give early pleasure...91-94" IWC 09/10 "The 2009 Folatières is another really stunning example of the vintage. The bouquet is deep, pure and utterly classic, as it offers up scents of apple, lemon, white peach, spring flowers, chalky minerality and discreet new wood. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and generous at the core, with lovely underlying acidity, excellent focus and balance and lovely backend drive and amplitude. This is another outstanding bottle, but it will drink decidedly sooner than the Clavoillon this year and is definitely the first premier cru from Domaine Leflaive I would reach for in the cellar if I wanted one to drink on the early side....93" JG 11/10
