Jean-Marie Bouzereau is based in Meursault, where his family have cultivated vines for over ten generations. He operates nine acres on the villages of Volnay and Pommard in red, and white of course in Meursault.
The traditional method is applied to working the vines and wine maturation, so the harvest is by hand, fermentation is in oak barrels for one year with around 20% new oak. The secrets of modern knowledge are employed otherwise: ploughing the vineyards, hand harvesting and sorting and unfiltered red wines.
Aged for one year in barrels with 20% new oak.
Golden yellow color. Vanilla flavors, with touches of butter and brioche. Round on the mouth, with notes of toasted hazelnuts and accacia honey.

It is composed of 18 hectares of vines spread over the following villages: - Meursault - Volnay - Auxey-Duresses - Pommard - Monthelie - Beaune - Puligny-Montrachet - Corton.
Without a doubt, Folatiere is the best known terroir in Puligny-Montrachet due to its larger surface area. A number of well-known domaines offer some Folatières. The soils are deeper and richer in clay and the exposure is in line with Chevalier-Montrachet. The wines are richer and fatter than elsewhere in the village (except for the grand crus themselves). The name of the terroir maybe derived from folles terres, loose or "crazy" earth which is prone to erosion.
Lovely aromas of grilled nuts interspersed with minerals make up the aromatic profile of the Puligny-Montrachet Les Folatieres. Sappy mineral, toast, and bacon flavors are found in its silky, light to medium-bodied personality.
