Meursault, Clos de la Velle, Olivier Leflaive 2017
Shipment to the UK anticipated May 2021
£54.95 per bottle
Clos de la Velle is a classic Meursault from a single, walled vineyard situated on welldrained soils just below the village. An extremely attractive and elegantly balanced wine, the 2017 spent 8 months in oak barrels (20% new) and has an appealing bouquet of stone fruits with a hint of white smoke. On the palate succulent lemon, apple and yellow plum notes are balanced by a refreshing mineral acidity which leads to a long finish. Delicious now with good ageing potential too.
Power and generosity typical to Meursault plus fine acidity. A cru for the cellar.
Serving temperature : 11-13°C
