This wine was pale gold in appearance. The nose was wholesome with aromas of walnuts, pecans, lime zest and Chinese pears. The entry was slightly abrasive as a result of frontal acidity, but the fruits ease their way into the mid palate with flavours of lime, white peaches and chalky limestone. The finish is round with ample fruits that linger.
My favorite wine of the 2011 Olivier Leflaive portfolio. Elegant and lively with pineapple, minerals, flint, apricot marmalade, ocean and salt. This has some QPR and should drink well soon upon release and for several years after.
