The elegance of the 2012 vintage is very much in evidence in this superb young Folatieres. The utterly refined bouquet is a complex blend of pear, apple, tangerine, acacia blossoms, chalky minerality and a gentle framing of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and rock solid at the core, with a very mineral personality, crisp acids, outstanding focus and grip and an almost crystalline impression to its soil tones on the very, very long and zesty finish. A beautiful bottle of Folatieres from the domaine this year. John Gilman, A View from the Cellar

Acid off the charts. Beautiful fruit notes. Complex. All star wine.

Somehow rich and intense; while soft, round and yielding. Needs a few years, but still ... 13%
