Grapes

A subtle but not invisible touch of wood sets off the pretty and fresh aromas of various orchard fruits, and in particular white peach and pear. There is fine volume for a wine at this level to the round and seductively textured flavors where a hint of citrus adds a bit of lift to the acceptably complex and persistent finale.

The 2014 vintage was a favorable one for white Burgundy, even for the most basic Bourgogne. Sourced from vineyards in Puligny-Montrachet and Meursault, Olivier Leflaive's Les Sétilles bottling (the name means "family garden") is a round, rich wine with a touch of oak.

The Wall Street Journal , 2016-06-01

An opulent, mouthfilling white, offering apple and lemon cake flavors and accents of honey and flowers. Firms up, with a chalky feel on the finish. Drink now. 4,391 cases imported.
