Review:
The 2018 Puligny-Montrachet Les Folatières 1er Cru is more backward and austere on the nose compared to the domaine’s Les Referts, yet give it aeration and it develops wonderful flinty, almost Chablis-like aromas that are beautifully defined. The palate is very precise and mineral-driven with a malic core of fruit and superb depth from start to finish. This is one of the best Pulignys I have encountered from Bachelet-Monnot. Highly recommended.
