I especially like the vibrant minerality here. Yellow stone fruits flesh out the mid-palate and finish nicely in this expressive radiant wine that captures the essence of the year. Remy comments that he tends to use barrels with lower levels of toast for the Folatieres to compensate for the richness the fruit provides on its own. Anticipated maturity: 2014+.

Plenty of fruit here too but this shows better grip and lift than the Clavoillons more life in the mouth. At once lush and energetic and firm and long on the aftertaste. Less obviously 2009 in style.

Last year from barrel this was restrained to the point of being almost mute but that is no longer the case as the nose is now overtly expressive with very ripe and again borderline exotic aromas of yellow orchard fruit... Last year from barrel this was restrained to the point of being almost mute but that is no longer the case as the nose is now overtly expressive with very ripe and again borderline exotic aromas of yellow orchard fruit along with the more classic scents of citrus pear and acacia blossom. There is very good verve and punch to the detailed and mineral-inflected middle weight flavors that culminate in a focused complex and solidly long finish.
