Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru "Les Folatières" 2013, François Carillon


This is clearly a very fine wine indeed. Although it is only just showing its feathers as it unfurls after 12 months in 228 litre barrels and 6 months in cuves. A nose of lemon, orange and white flowers. There is finesse and beauty on the palate. Ballerina-like balance. Medium+ acidity and good ripe citrus fruit. Will be perfect with top notch fish like Dover sole or halibut from 2017 onwards. Scores 26/30 for a Puligny 1er Cru.
