Remoissenet Puligny-Montrachet Folatieres 2001 and Leflaive's Blagny 2000

Didn’t write down any notes so here’s what I remembered: the Les Folatieres had a sweet honeyed aroma and quite floral with a touch of bortrytis. On the palate it was completely dry with good ripe stoned fruit flavours. Slightly on the heavy side in terms of mouthfeel that ended with a medium, slightly bitter finish. Leflaive’s had a dangerously close call to 2,4,6-trichloroanisole but there were still abundant primary fruit flavours . Rustic and slightly grainy in texture. One of the last vintages of this particular vineyard before the vines were replanted with Chardonnay.
