Robert Parker, Jr's Wine Advocate:  "The 2015 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Folatières is a very nice example of the vintage, wafting from the glass with a generous bouquet of buttered apples, citrus zest, white flowers and a lavish framing of nutty new oak.  On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, rich and flavorful with a textural attack, chewy mid-palate and succulent acids.  The finish is long and racy, though this is definitely a ripe, buxom rendition of Folatières which is very characteristic of the vintage.  Note that this tasting note applies to the négociant bottling, as distinct from Olivier Leflaive's domaine version from the vines formerly part of Domaine Leflaive."  Apr 2018

Wine Enthusiast:  "A blend of a variety of parcels in the Leflaive home village of Puligny-Montrachet, this wine is rich while also intensely structured and mineral textured.  Spice and buttered toast comes from the wood aging along with the peach and ripe quince fruits.  The line of acidity that cuts through the wine adds to the complexity.  Drink from 2020."  Apr 2018

Winery:  "This famous wine from our domain expresses noble and distinguished aromas with notes of citrus, beautiful minerality and toasted scents.  The mouth is elegant and tonic with a very long persistence."
