Indeed a fantastic wine; from start to finish it shows precision. Freshness and body go hand in hand. No signs of decay. I still have two or three bottles to retaste this unbelievable effort of Olivier Leflaive.
This started out slightly reticent but picked up weight and complexity with air. Rich fruit and minerals are backed up by earth and mushroom notes and while I don't know if this sees any oak, it has this lush, creaminess that is stunning. Medium bodied with a beautiful texture, great depth and a long finish. 92/93
Clear with just a tad of light hay like yellow color, and a sharp full nose of fruit that yielded a full mouth feel that was crisp and bright with flavor. Enough acid to balance with sauteed Tiger Shrimp and foil an accompanied rich mushroom risotto. A nice surprise...
