K&L Notes

One of the wines poured at the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. This was the old world wine choice for the reception.

    One sip of this transported me back to La Table, Olivier Leflaive’s very nice bistro in the center of Puligny. The Les Setilles has both the meyer lemon citrus drive and the only-in-Burgundy earthiness in spades, all at a great price. Their is not much of the frost affected 2016 to be had, but the quality is at least as good as the fantastic 2014's.

    The nose is lively, seems fresh and easy with the slightest hints of vanilla. On the palate the wine has an elegant feel to it, that doesn’t mean light; it has a supple richness to it while the lift on the palate freshens the palate feel. The finish is supple and easy and this is an easy choice as a crossover wine for California Chardonnay drinkers who want to try white burgundy, and everyday cocktail chardonnay that will go well with slightly richer fish dishes.

    Just when you might think white Burgundy is getting over-hyped and over-priced, you come across a wine like this and fall in love with it all over again. There are still a few unbelievable finds from Burgundy and this is one of them. This is the classic style with everything you want from Burgundian Chardonnay. Fresh, lifted, bright, smooth, and nuanced. I'm stocking up on this unbelievable vintage, knowing it tastes great now, but will remain lovely for years to come.

    While we can wax on cool new stuff for days and days, there is something to be said for the tried and true, branded, consistently delicious wine we sell vintage after vintage. This is one of those wines, a white Burgundy which year after year delivers the goods. Focused, brightly citric and with surprising length, the Olivier Leflaive Les Setilles works as aperitive, accompaniment to pan seared fish, cheese course wine...you name it, it just works, really well. Recommended and likely in short supply in the short 2016 vintage, so grab what you need now....

    The gem of a White Burgundy has great acidity! Loaded with yellow fruits and a relatively rich mid-palate, it starts and finishes with lively grapefruit notes. Very fresh and bright and just simply...delicious! Plus, a lingering finish. What more could you want?
