Olivier Leflaive Bourgogne Blanc Les Setilles 2011

Sku: 310346

The fruit for this comes 70% from Puligny and 30% from Meursault; Les Sétilles is a brand name with no other significance; 50% older wood.
A very fresh and intensely floral nose also reflects hints of lemon-lime and earth, both of which can also be found on the nicely rich and round flavors that are not only intense and delicious but also deliver better than average complexity. A fine effort at this level.

Tasting notes
Rich, round and creamy, this delicious wine showcases a floral nose with zesty hints of lemon-lime. On the palate you’ll find crisp acidity and nice minerality.

Review
«This is not just any Bourgogne Blanc, this is Olivier Leflaive’s closely guarded secret blend from prime vineyards in Puligny and Meursault. The resulting wine is the perfect progeny, melding seamlessly Meursault’s fleshy fruit, plump fresh nuts and creamy textures with the driving minerally energy and jasmine scent of Puligny. Exceptional wine, extraordinary value, one of burgundy’s best kept secrets. A C&B staff favorite»


Rating
2010: 86 Points - Antonio Galloni, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Bourgogne Les Setilles is a direct, frank wine with good varietal and vintage definition in its bright, zesty fruit. Ideally, it is best enjoyed over the next 1-2 years. Anticipated maturity: 2012+. "
