Folatières comes from the old French "Foletière", "place haunted by the follets", beings of legend. The climate is vast, not very homogeneous, but the Château is lucky that its 0.52 ha vineyard is located in the heart of the cru, halfway up the hillside between prestigious neighbours (Leflaive and Leroy). The quality of this terroir, half limestone, half clay, suggests that it is one of the three best 1er Cru of Puligny. The estate introduced organic farming in 2002, then Biodynamic farming in 2005.
The harvest is entirely manual. After a light settling, the musts are put into barrels, mainly 600 l. and also 228 l., where the alcoholic and malolactic fermentation takes place. 5 to 20% of the barrels are new, with wood coming mainly from the Allier region, with long and light toasting. The first racking takes place after about a year of maturation in the wood and the second phase (4 to 6 months) in stainless steel tanks begins.
