"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. We have 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, we 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.
