As mentioned yesterday, this was the ‘stand-in’ for the oxidised Roulot, and if anything was even deeper coloured!
2001 Château de Puligny-Montrachet, Puligny-Montrachet 1er Folatières
A rather deep, initially worrysome colour. Fortunately the nose betrays nothing unmentionable though it’s a little heavy, indeed ponderous. In the mouth it’s wide, a little fat and certainly has lots of mid-palate flavour. There is just about enough acidity for balance. The fruit starts sweet but the finish is a little more sour. The finish has a decent length. Whilst this was a beauty when younger, if I had more in the cellar I’d be drinking them all this year.
Rebuy – No
