Bourgogne Blanc Les Setilles Olivier Leflaive 2016

Bourgogne Blanc Les Sétilles is a favourite of Corney & Barrow staff and customers alike!

"A year ago, when Meursault's future crops were destroyed by frost, it looked unlikely this vintage would be made at all. However at harvest, Puligny grapes were too exceptionnal to ignore and Franck Grux, the winemaker, was able to create a parallel recipe to rival the Sétilles we all know and love. The grapes have fermented in old barrels to gain richness and texture. A delicious Bourgogne Blanc with creamy textured apple fruit, that punches above its weight.  "

“Impressive white Burgundy is always a treat and, despite being from younger vines, this version brilliantly gives us an inkling of the heights to which top level parts of the region can soar – but at a good price. Rounded and with a creamy texture, 2016 Bourgogne Blanc Les Sétilles Olivier Leflaive has apple and melon fruit with a hint of apricot, pithy zest and lime acidity all enclosed in a gentle oak background with classic vanilla components.”

Brian Elliott, Mid Week Wines

Region

Burgundy

Burgundy’s complexity and tremendous diversity are the result of geological accident. Centuries ago, faulting tore the great valley apart, easing the passage of the nearby Saône River.
