Olivier Leflaive les Setilles Olivier Laflaive Chardonnay Cote d'Or France 2007
Light oak. A bit of a familiar "champagne-y" finish, which is pleasant. Notes of honey. Served with Chicken Marsala, 'tis perfection.
We had this wine with a meal that featured "chicken under a brick." The wine seemed to be a perfect complement.
External Reviews for Olivier Leflaive les Setilles Olivier Laflaive Chardonnay Cote d'Or France
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.
Selected from vineyards in Puligny-Montrachet (60%) and Meursault (40%). A sophisticated Bourgogne which is given fermentation in Allier barrels.
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.
A pleasant, lemon- and spice-tinged white, a little on the tart side, with a decent finish. Drink now.
