Olivier Leflaive Bourgogne Blanc Les Sétilles 2016

Les Sétilles is Olivier Leflaive's house wine, and makes a terrific introduction to white Burgundy for those new to the style. Sétilles is classic Olivier Leflaive and displays all the hallmarks of the house: creamy and fresh, ripe and minerally, the wine is beautifully structured and emminently approachable too.

The Bourgogne Blanc Les Sétilles is a blend based on Chardonnay grapes from the stellar villages of Puligny-Montrachet and Meursault, and punches way above its official legal classification; it is without doubt the catch-all Bourgogne Blanc. Remarkably consistent year on year, Les Sétilles is as delicious as ever. Fragrant white blossom and vanilla notes lead to ripe comice pear and buttercream layers on the palate, balanced by refreshing acidity.
