Olivier Leflaive Frères Bourgogne White les Sétilles 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes This Chablis is blended from grapes bought from contract growers and carefully vinified at Olivier Leflaives winery. The cuve is a blend of grapes from both sides of the Serein River, thus the name Deux Rives or Two Banks. Most of the vines utilized to make this wine are more than 30 years old and the grapes are manually harvested. The success of this Chablis is based in its quality and expression of terroir.
