Olivier Leflaive-Saint Romain
Good value white Burgandy from Saint-Romain, the small, high-altitude appellation known for its mineral whites. Expect intense flavours of peach, citrus and spice, softening with age.
Olivier Leflaive produces several cuvèes from the villages of Saint Aubin, Auxey-Duresses and Saint-Romain. These villages are situated close to the three major communes of the Côte de Beaune: Meursault, Puligny-Montrachet and Chassagne-Montrachet and enjoy nearly identical geology with their more famous neighbors. This excellent value Burgandy is pale yellow in colour and offers aromas of white flowers, yellow fruits (mirabelle) dominated by minerality. The palate offers a certain liveliness softened with age. Ideal with raw fishes, grilled poultry or soft cheese as Camembert.
