Leflaive les Setilles Bourgogne Blanc 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Tight on the nose with tree bark and tar notes over faint lime and peach, with a gentle violet pastille top note. This is fairly rich for this bottling with acid that seems a touch soft, though it’s probably only in relation to the richness. Lots of apple and peach fruit here along with mineral and gentle oak notes. The finish was a bit steely and tight , not showing the fruit persistence one would have hoped for. This should improve a bit with additional time in bottle. 88pts

Very oaky on the nose. Apricots and minerals on the tongue with a sour bitter finish. Not a huge fan of this one, but I tend to dislike the more oaky Chardonnays.

A 60/40 blend of Chardonnay from Meursault and Puligny respectively, this tasty white is both fined and filtered after sharing wood and steel during aging. Shows easy flavors along with clean, crisp acidity. A lot of wine for a little money.

Selected from vineyards in Puligny-Montrachet (60%) and Meursault (40%). A sophisticated Bourgogne which is given fermentation in Allier barrels.

Fresh and floral on the opening whiff supplemented by a bracing minerality. Bright citrus and lemon along with flashy acidity make for a pleasantly vibrant mouthfeel. The finish is thicker than the body would suggest woven through with citrus and earthy notes. Pair with turkey lobster or pasta with cream sauce.

Fine balance underpins the pear peach and grapefruit flavors in this rich round white which shows moderate length. Drink now.

A blend from Puligny-Montrachet and Meursault, this is a soft rounded wine with white fruit acidity, almond flavors and a gentle lemon zest texture. Drink in the next two years.

A pleasant, lemon- and spice-tinged white, a little on the tart side, with a decent finish. Drink now.
