Wood-aging flavors add richness to this wonderfully full-bodied wine. The final acidity and texture will allow it to age for many years. Drink from 2023. ROGER VOSS collapse

On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, deep and layered, with a satiny texture, excellent concentration and a seamless, elegant profile. Jadot has several parcels in Folatières, so this is an important cuvée for them. It's well worth seeking out.- WK collapse

On the palate the wine is full-bodied and quite ample, but like the Clos de la Chapelle it retains tension and focus on the finish. This seems to be a generous, near-term rendition of Folatières, but it should deliver lots of pleasure. collapse

(91+ points) (Jadot made two barrels of this wine, vs. a normal six; the vines are situated high on the slope, not far from Jadot's Chevalier-Montrachet Les Demoiselles): Very pure but subdued aromas of apple and spices... expand (91+ points) (Jadot made two barrels of this wine, vs. a normal six; the vines are situated high on the slope, not far from Jadot's Chevalier-Montrachet Les Demoiselles): Very pure but subdued aromas of apple and spices. Concentrated and sappy on the palate, conveying an enticing touch of oaky sweetness to its flavors of white peach, spiced apple and flowers. Not yet showing ultimate class but this is still young and unevolved. -- Stephen Tanzer collapse
