2009 Joseph Drouhin Puligny Montrachet 1er Cru "Folatieres"

SKU #1073089 91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark * Outstanding! * A ripe and overtly floral nose also speaks of white peach, pear and toasty oak that serve as an elegant introduction to the mineral-inflected, delicious and impressively rich middle weight flavors that possess excellent length where the wood also resurfaces. This refined effort is very Puligny in style and character. Inner quote mark (2/2011)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright medium yellow. Ripe peach and nectarine aromas complicated by flowers, dusty brown spices and vanillin oak. Ripe and smooth on the palate, with an impression of dusty extract to the peach and floral flavors. This nicely balanced wine shows better flavor intensity and freshness in bottle than it did in barrel but is still in a rather easygoing, approachable style. Inner quote mark (10/2011)

89 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2009 Puligny-Montrachet Folatieres is soft, supple and inviting. Today it is a bit shy and introverted though, with just the subtlest hints of fruit that emerge from the glass. It reveals excellent balance and an understated, saline finish laced with essence of crushed rocks. This is a wine I hope to revisit in a few months, as it appears a bit awkward at this stage. Anticipated maturity: 2013+. Inner quote mark (9/2011)
