2010 Domaine Benoit Ente Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru "Folatières - En la Richarde"

SKU #1119353 92-94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark *Outstanding* As is usually the case chez Ente, this is the most elegant wine in the range with a classic Puligny nose of white flower, wet stone, white orchard fruit and soft citrus hints. There is good richness and excellent volume to the mouth coating, textured and well-delineated flavors that possess an explosively long and dry finish. This lovely effort is a beautiful combination of power allied with finesse. In a word, terrific. Inner quote mark (6/2012)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2010 Puligny-Montrachet Folatieres en La Richarde is sublime. The aromas and flavors are quite undeveloped at this stage. What comes across most is the wine’s stunning textural elegance, body and volume. Layers of fruit build to a floral, refined finish that turns a bit ethereal. The Folatieres is pure harmony. The only thing missing is a bit more depth on the finish. Anticipated maturity: 2012+. There are obviously very good genes in the Ente family. Like his brother Arnaud, Benoit Ente has turned out a fabulous set of 2010s, with one or two exceptions. This is the first vintage in which Benoit Ente has given his wines a full 18 months of elevage. The 2010s spent 12 months in oak followed by 6 months in steel prior to being bottled with no fining or filtration in April of this year. As was the case throughout the region, yields were impacted significantly because of the poor flowering and high incidence of coulure and millerandage. Overall, yields came in at 35 hectoliters per hectare as compared with the typical 48 or so. Inner quote mark (8/2012)
