Olivier Leflaive Bourgogne Bl Setilles 2008
Editorial Reviews for Olivier Leflaive Bourgogne Bl Setilles
This is very floral on the nose, with tropical tones over lean lemon custard and tangelo fruit. Bright and well focused with good depth of flavor on a light frame. This is streamlined and sleek with gentle suggestions of pollen, fennel and maybe even a touch of rhubarb accenting the core of citrus fruit. Very fresh and vibrant in the mouth in a lovely, refreshing style. The finish shows some dusty apple character and is a bit shorter than expected. 88pts
Warm golden apple, pear, carmel, with a citrusy finish and hint of oak. Some mushroomy earthiness balances it out. Has some good weight to it.
Drinking lovely right now (7/10). Good acid, lovely multi-dimensional fruit, a great value in white burgundy.
Paired very nicely with raw oysters.

Wonderfully pure Chardonnay nose. Steely and well-focused on the palate, with ample grace, medium body, and good length. The tinge of tropical fruit is a reflection of the extraordinary vintage. A wine of great pleasure in the short to medium term. - Winery ** Only 10 in Stock **
