This tightly textured wine comes from the vineyard at the top of the Puligny-Montrachet slope, which has a stony chalk soil. Wood-aging flavors add richness to this wonderfully full-bodied wine. The final acidity and texture will allow it to age for many years. Drink from 2023.
The 2016 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Folatières (Domaine des Héritiers Jadot) is showing superbly from bottle, wafting from the glass with aromas of fragrant citrus fruit, crisp green apple, white flowers and subtle pastry cream. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, deep and layered, with a satiny texture, excellent concentration and a seamless, elegant profile. Jadot has several parcels in Folatières, so this is an important cuvée for them. It's well worth seeking out. 93+ (WK)
A whiff of exotic character is present on the white peach, mandarin orange and floral aromas that are trimmed in discreet wood influence. The citrus-inflected, intense and attractively minerally middle weight flavors possess good weight and punch though not the same refinement on the relatively robust and powerful finale.
(Jadot made two barrels of this wine, vs. a normal six; the vines are situated high on the slope, not far from Jadot's Chevalier-Montrachet Les Demoiselles): Very pure but subdued aromas of apple and spices. Concentrated and sappy on the palate, conveying an enticing touch of oaky sweetness to its flavors of white peach, spiced apple and flowers. Not yet showing ultimate class but this is still young and unevolved. 91+ (ST)
