2018 Domaine Olivier Leflaive Meursault-Blagny 1er Cru "Sous le Dos d'Ane"

SKU #1517811 94 points Decanter

Outer quote mark A Meursault that's almost a Puligny, both in terms of geography and style, this is a wine that benefited from its altitude in 2018. Formerly a red vineyard until it was replanted in 1983, this is subtle, leesy and engagingly refreshing for the vintage, with well-handled 20% new wood, crunchy acidity and a taut, stony, lees-influenced finish. (TA) Inner quote mark (10/2019)

89-92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark Pungent wisps of sulfur and reduction are all that are perceptible today. Otherwise there is very good intensity to the delicious, round and nicely detailed middle weight flavors that exude a subtle minerality on the citrusy, clean and agreeably dry finish. Inner quote mark (6/2020)

K&L Notes

91-94 points Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy: "Pale lemon, a little bit of biscuit from the barrel, nicely balanced, very elegant, with a long stylish finish. This is wonderfully, gracefully poised with excellent balance."
