Oliver Leflaive Les Setilles (Declassified Puligny and Mersault!) Deal!
When my 21 year-old daughter, Nina informed me, "Dad, I'm really getting into these White Burgundies" I was proud because I will say she has great palate and has since a very young age. I also informed her that she better study and do well in school because good White Burgundy ain't cheap. The Leflaive Les Setilles though is a Burgundy bargain. Sourced from vineyards within the communes of Puligny Montrachet and Meursault, with each village representing roughly half of the final blend. Grapes are sourced from multiple plots within each village in an effort to maximize complexity of the final wine. Vintage consistency is the goal with this wine, so the blending together of lots and aging technique will vary according. Roughly 60% of the wine is aged in Allier oak, only 10% of which is new. The remaining 40% of the wine is aged in stainless steel to preserve clean varietal character. So here you go Nina! Bargain White Burgundy! Now get back to your studies.
