Notes of crisp orchard fruit, white peach, clear honey, almond paste and white flowers. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and elegantly enveloping, it's bright and fleshy, with a giving, seductive personality.

William Kelley, Wine Advocate.

A slightly riper though still noticeably cool nose features notes of lemon confit, essence of pear and apple compote with pretty floral wisps. The mouthfeel of the markedly stony medium-bodied flavors possess a real contrast between the relatively supple mid-palate and the powerful, serious and citrus rind and quinine-inflected finish that is quite dry but not really austere. This too is very promising. 

Allen Meadows, Burghound.

Light clean pale primrose, a little more sweetness of fruit, tension too, then fills out the middle palate, huge density at the back and a lovely touch of spice and sandalwood. For all that I enjoyed the Clavoillon, this Folatières clearly displays greater concentration. 

Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy.
