2022 Bourgogne Blanc Les Sétilles, Olivier Leflaive Frères

2022 Bourgogne Blanc Les Sétilles, Olivier Leflaive Frères

Les Sétilles is a contender for most popular wine on our list. It is a smash hit of a Bourgogne Blanc, made from a huge patchwork of vineyards, many clustered around the village of Puligny, and some from further afield. Latterly the fruit coming from the Hautes-Côtes has brought welcome freshness and tension to the wine. Two-thirds of the wine is raised in oak, with just a touch (10%) in new. It is precise, full of character, and quite simply a snapshot of some great winemaking at play in a promising vintage. It shows lemon brightness, mineral bite and a lovely seam of acidity leading to an impressively long finish.

Tasting notes

In bottle though there will be a second bottling shortly. Pale lemon colour. Not much nose at first. Then a little apple fruit with a light citrus rinse. 10% tank, the rest in wood. Quite full bodied, with a richness to the white fruit helped along by a touch of new wood, 12% in the blend. Drink from 2024-2027. Tasted: October 2023.
