Domaine de Montille - Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru 'Les Folatieres' 2019
The Domaine de Montille has practiced organic viticulture since 1995. Today, the wines are certified by Ecocert. Additionally, since 2005, biodynamic practices have been implemented to show the full respect for these living soils.
Domaine de Montille wines are known for their great aromatic purity. Always favor balance and elegance over power and extraction. The wines are classic expressions of Burgundy, of their appellations in general and of their specific terroirs in particular. The farming methods used contribute to this individual style, and the winemaking methods aim to avoid excessive outside influences in order to bring out the equilibrium that can be found naturally in Burgundian terroir.
"Folatières" comes from the old French "Foletière", a place haunted by goblins, legendary creatures, leprechauns with liveliness and grace. It typically conjures up a vision of dancing wisps. The vineyard is large and hardly homogenous. Domaine de Montille has the privilege of a single parcel of 0.52 hectare located in the heart of the cru, at mid-slope and with two prestigious neighbors on each side (Domaines Leflaive and Leroy.)
With the quality of this terroir, part limestone, part clay, they believe this is one of the three best Premier Crus of Puligny along with "Le Cailleret" and "Les Pucelles". It merits a placement among the "Great Premier Crus", those that rival the Grand Crus.
It is a remarkable cru – fine, airy, playful yet complex, floral and spicy. Its mouthfeel is generous but structured and lengthy, which indicates a long aging potential.
