My notes on the wines are below. You can also see some of the other comments from the tasters that night on the Tastelive Wildman Wines page.
- 2008 Olivier Leflaive Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Vergers Clos Saint-Marc - France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru (10/5/2010)Rich lemon and honey butter on a palate that is also all about the acid. For the acid heads. This one really pops in the mouth. Terrific length. Goes on and on. Needs a couple of years, but great material here. I likey.
- 2008 Olivier Leflaive Meursault - France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Meursault (10/5/2010)
Almond and buttered toast nose. It is supple and slightly buttery sweet now on the palate. Structured too, and some acidity peeking about. A good village, it's just a bit rich to me at this point.
- 2008 Olivier Leflaive Puligny-Montrachet - France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Puligny-Montrachet (10/4/2010)
Somewhat linear, but rich, too. The richness of '08 shows. Still, the wine seemed not ready for action. Patrick said this one needs more years to unwind.
- 2007 Olivier Leflaive Meursault 1er Cru Charmes - France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Meursault 1er Cru (10/4/2010) Really exquisite and elegant nose. Floral. Beautiful palate impression with white flowers, lemon peel, and buttery toast notes. Crisp acid that just dances along. Young and racy, but already giving. Quite long. Very nice with some upside for sure.
