International Wine Cellarage (IWC) Review

IWC 93
Pale straw-yellow color. Flowers, hazelnut and fresh straw on the deep nose. Initially tight and a bit angular, but with superb juicy lift and sneaky density to its flavors of citrus fruits, mineral and white flowers. Began with limited sweetness and pliancy but took on greater roundness with air, all the while remaining precise and firm.

Wine Advocate (WA) Review

WA 89-91
The Girardin 2006 Puligny-Montrachet Les Folatieres offers peach and purple plum accented with lemon zest and crushed stone. Less effusive and sweetly-fruited than many of the other wines in this collection, it offers nutty piquancy, faintly bitter fruit pit notes, and distinct stoniness in a long, just faintly warm finish. Expect this to need a year or two in bottle to show its true colors, and hopefully it will have at least 6 years of aging potential.-David Schildknecht

Wine Spectactor (WS) Review

WS 91
Jasmine and honeysuckle add a floral component to the lemon and pear flavors, all enhanced by oak spice. This is tightly wound and still raw, with a lively structure and a juicy finish. Best from 2010 through 2018. 150 cases imported. –BS
