The 2016 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Folatières was apparently much closed the week before I tasted it at the domaine. It offers more complexity and terroir expression on the nose than the Les Referts at this early juncture, with lovely yellow flower and dried honey notes emerging with time as it achieves impressive vigor. The palate is very well balanced with a superb bead of acidity, maybe a little richer than the 2015 last year, with a seductive waxy texture toward the long finish. This is a beautifully crafted Les Folatières from Bachelet-Monnot that comes highly recommended.

The 2009 Cristal literally shimmers on the palate, showing great depth and purity in its sumptuous layers of fruit. It is a magnificent wine endowed with superb length and exceptional overall balance. The 2009 Cristal is 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay. The percentage of wine aged in oak is 15%, which is down slightly from previous vintages.
Cristal is a remarkably balanced and refined champagne whose length is inimitable. It has a silky texture and fruity aromas, complemented by a powerful mineral quality with white fruit and citrus notes. Cristal is a wine that keeps well: it can be conserved for over twenty years without losing its freshness and character.
