Olivier Leflaive, Bourgogne Les Sétilles 750ml 2017France, Burgundy
One of Burgundy’s most impressive names, Olivier Leflaive is recognised as much for the consistent quality and style of its wines as for the sheer breadth of its range. ‘Today, he is one of Burgundy’s top white wine producers and the maison wines match the domaine wines for their sheer quality, class and longevity!’ – Roland
The Leflaive family have been Burgundy producers for many decades but, in 1984, Olivier Leflaive set up his merchant house producing wines under his own label from his own vineyards in Puligny-Montrachet. To establish his estate, he purchased 12 hectares of land in prestigious appellations including village Meursault to the Grands Crus of Montrachet and Criots-Bâtard-Montrachet. Today, Olivier Leflaive controls all the winemaking and the ageing of the wines. Each vintage benefits from an individual approach and guarantees the authenticity of each appellation.
'No fewer than 65 parcels go into this commendably reliable cuvée, sourced from vineyards in Rully, Meursault, Puligny-Montrachet and the Hautes Côtes. It's lightly wooded, appealingly fresh and showing good citrus-like ping. Drinking Window 2019 - 2022' – Tim Atkin MW, Decanter, 90/100
'There is a whiff of matchstick character to the aromas of citrus and pear that lead to round, supple and delicious flavors that are clean, dry and refreshing if a bit one-dimensional. Correct.' – Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, 86/100
The wine is stemming from the blending of about sixty plots located on the village of Puligny and also in Meursault.
Soil : Calcareus clay, Stilty clay
