Olivier-Leflaive-Bourgogne-Blanc-Oncle-Vincent-2015

Olivier Leflaive, Bourgogne Blanc ''Oncle Vincent'', 2016

The Bourgogne Oncle Vincent is a homage to Vincent Leflaive, who was essentially a second father to Olivier. It is sourced only from old vines in excess of 25 years within the Puligny district and is limited to 1,500 cases. The nose has a little more presence and complexity than the Les Setilles with light chalky scents emerging with aeration. The palate is nicely balanced and fresh on the entry. It is not a complex wine, but it is clean and fresh. It displays satisfactory Puligny character on the finish, even if it cuts away too quickly. This is a wine that has great flexibility for matching with a bunch of lighter dishes as well as a variety of occasions and will not disappoint.
