Though light-footed, this white is expansive, filled with flavors of lemon cake, apple tart and white flowers. Vibrant and long, with precision balance and a lingering aftertaste of flowers, honey, mineral and spice. Scintillating. Best from 2020 to 2030. — B.S.

(91-93 points) A riper but still quite fresh nose displays notes of white peach, floral, citrus and a whiff of the exotic. Yet again there is excellent volume to the sappy mouth coating flavors that also exude evident minerality on the lingering and well-balanced finish that isn't quite as firm or complex. Still this is certainly promising and should reward mid-term cellaring.

On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, layered and complete with impressive harmony and a long, classy finish. Elegant, harmonious and youthfully reserved, this classic Folatières should really hit its stride after five years in bottle. Matured in 20% new oak and bottled under Diam 30. - William Kelley

Riper and more open-knit on the nose than the Combettes, displaying lovely floral lift to its yellow fruit and spicy oak flavors. The smoothest of these 2015s to this point, showing a restrained sweetness and ripe framing acidity to its peach and pineapple flavors. A stony underpinning gives this very suave wine an impression of power to go with its balance. Tightens up on the end, but I suspect the Combettes will enjoy a longer life in bottle, as this wine seems to be lower in acidity. - Stephen Tanzer

The bouquet is pure and utterly classic in its mélange of apple, white peach, hints of the pastry cream to come,. Chalky soil tones, beeswax, apple blossoms and discreet vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and very elegant in profile, with fine mid-palate depth, bright acids and lovely length and grip on the vibrant finish. Lovely juice.
