Olivier Leflaive Bourgogne Bl Setilles 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

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.

The Leflaive family has always had a few hectares of vines in Burgundy, in addition to their farm. Just after the First World War, Olivier’s grandfather, Joseph Leflaive was faced with the failure of his steel factory in Saint-Etienne. His investments in Burgundy were all he had left and he decided to enlarge his wine estate. It became a family-run operation covering some 35 hectares. His son, Joseph Régis, was in insurance and along with his brother Vincent, decided to take over the reins in 1953. The estate soon began producing top-flight wines, mainly due to the arrival of air conditioning in Puligny in the 1970s. This was a major step for winemakers in this village which sits two meters above the water table and as such, had no underground cellars. Read less

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.
