Olivier Leflaive - Bourgogne Rouge Cuvée Margot 2017
Like it's sister wine -Bourgogne Blanc Les Sétilles- the Bourgogne Rouge Cuvée Margot represents an incredible value within it's category.
Terroir: The Cuvée Margot is sourced from a variety of terroir within the Côte de Beaune with a large percentage sourced within the village of Pommard. Soils are a combination of limestone and clay.
Vinification Following a strict sorting of grapes and long cool fermentaion the wine is aged in a combination of oak (60%) and stainless steel with no more than 20% of the barrels being new.
Stainless steel aging helps to retain the freshness and vineyard character of the final blend producing a wine of great purity and character.
Additional Details editA flattering nose with aromas of small red berries (strawberry, raspberry). A fresh and elegant palate with crunchy fruits and fine tannins.

"A note of pure cherry is framed by toasty oak accents in this polished red. Earth and spice details peek through as this winds down on the finish. Drink now through 2004. 400 cases imported."

"The 2017 Bourgogne Rouge Cuvée Margot bursts with expressive scents of cherries, incense and licorice. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, ample and open-knit, with an enveloping, tangy core of fruit and melting tannins."

"Sourced from the Côte de Beaune, this wine is smooth, juicy, packed with red-cherry fruits and pretty much ready to drink. A few tannins maintain the wine's shape as well as final acidity. Drink now."
