A pretty bouquet of citrus blossom, Meyer lemon, crisp green pear and pastry cream introduces the 2017 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Folatières, a medium to full-bodied wine that's beautifully satiny and elegant, with excellent depth and dimension, a harmonious sense of completeness and bright balancing acids, concluding with a long and pure finish. This was the first of Leflaive's holdings to be picked in 2017. William Kelley – The Wine Advocate

(this was the first vineyard harvested in 2017, according to Brice de La Morandière): Ripe aromas of peach and orange juice complicated by a leesy nuance. Broad and suave in the mouth, with a peach flavor lifted and intensified by a floral component. This sharply focused Folatières conveys a compelling impression of sweetness, yet the residual sugar here is barely one gram per liter, according to winemaker Pierre Vincent. Finishes pure and very long, with a light touch. Stephen Tanzer – Vinous Media

Tasting note: There is a whiff of the exotic present on the smoky reduction and floral-scented nose. The bigger but not necessarily finer middle weight flavors possess good minerality that carries over to the borderline rustic if more tightly wound finish. This is certainly very good but it's rare when the Clavoillon is finer than the Folatières, at least today! Allen Meadows – Burghound

Very lively and yet concentrated too. Would withstand comparison with any domaine wine (hem, hem … which could I be thinking of?). Really sculpted and edgy. Jancis Robinson
