2011 Domaine Louis Jadot Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru "Les Folatieres" (Pre-Arrival)
The Puligny-Montrachet Folatieres (Heritieres) flows across the palate with textured suggestions of honey, white flowers, tangerine and sweet spices. A silky, oily finish laced with hazelnut and almond notes rounds things out in style. All the elements fall into place. The Puligny terroirs are all beautifully marked in these 2011s from Jadot, and the Folatieres is among the most nuanced.
Allen Meadows - Burghound
(from En la Richard). This is both more elegant and more restrained with its airy and complex nose of wet stone, acacia blossom, citrus peel and white peach. There is a fine sense of underlying tension to the stony, saline and utterly delicious medium-bodied flavors that culminate in a chiseled, pure and simply gorgeously long finish. This is terrific and should be both approachable young but offer fine cellar potential.
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
(these Domaine des Heritiers Louis Jadot vines are in the lieu-dit en la Richard, just above Chevalier-Montrachet): Good pale, bright yellow. Pure, subdued aromas of flowers, menthol and stone. Juicy and precise, with lovely intensity and acid cut to its concentrated floral and mineral flavors. For all its brightness this is quite silky and suave--not to mention easy to taste today. Finishes with noteworthy length.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2011 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Folatieres offers attractive scents of honeysuckle, apricot and almond that are well-defined. The palate is fresh and vibrant on the entry with crisp acidity, hints of quince and apricot with a citric twist on the long finish. It just needs a little more terroir expression. Drink 2015-2025.
