Stunning wine. Sickness. Give Chavy a few years and he will blow you away. Refined and noble aromas of hazelnut and iodine. Flowers galore. So mineral. Earthy, funky, sponti. Palate is like it is chiseled from rock. So pure and compact with laser like precision and purity. My god the purity. It’s so clean it’s like a white room. Brilliant!

Held it's own with its older cousin. Just delicious. Barely a hint of oak on the nose.

Really aromatic out of the gates. Minerals, seawater, iodine, hazelnuts. Super nice. Out of the gates the palate is quite tight but superbly balanced and very pure. Terrific acidity, finesse and so much sap, power and concentration. Magnificent.

Love AM tasting. Stunning nose of iodine, hazelnut, minerals, earthy funk, some floral perfume, touch of oak and so much nuance and complexity which is what Folatieres is to me aromatically. Rich and elegant with ripping acidity and lovely mineral/iodine tones and impressive concentration, but is so graceful and elegant. Terrific lithe yet serious structure and dazzlingly pure. A baby now but this is drinkable and will age. So impressive.

Still showing some oak on the nose. Great freshness on the palate. Wow. Great fruit. Delicious. Needs a year or two. Bought from Fass selections.
