Wine Library:

Classically styled and true to it's roots this Puligny-Montrachet, 1er Cru Folatieres has aromas of freshly baked bread with a hint of hazelnut. This is opulent and intense, and almost exotically ripe within the confines of Puligny elegance. Very poised.

Benois Ente trained at Coche Dury along with his brother, Arnaud. When their father died, Arnaud got the Meursault holdings and Benois got the Puligny holdings; his first vintage of production was 1999. He produces wine in his garage - he is literally a 'garagiste,' with about 20 barrels and two little blond daughters constantly in action. He has 9.25 acres (3.75 hectares) of land from which he produces about 1400 cases of wine annually. He makes Aligote, Bourgogne Blanc, and Puligny from the Premier Cru vineyards of Champs Gain, Folatieres and Referts. He practices sustainable agriculture, green harvests, and picks as late as possible. In the winery he ferments in barrel, 10-20% of which are new, depending on the vintage and appellation.
