Olivier Leflaive Bourgogne Rouge 2006 in the Sunday Business Post

Around the World with Pinot Noir. France: Burgundy: No global journey through Pinot Noir could start anywhere but Burgundy. The classical superstars of the variety are all located here, from €5,000 a bottle Domaine Romanee-Conti wines to entry-level Bourgogne rouge. Olivier Leflaive Bourgogne rouge 2006, Le Caveau, Market Yard, Kilkenny (89pts) Leflaive is a legendary name in Burgundy, and is associated with some of the greatest white wines in the World. Small supplies of Olivier Leflaive`s Meursault and Puligny-Montrachet are fought over by wine lovers each year. Generic Burgundy red can be sourced from across the whole region, but Leflaive sources only from small single vineyards in and around Beaune. The result is a light but vibrant wine with tangy savoury notes, light tart raspberry, touches of kir and a grippy, firm finish. It is a solid, attractive wine with no artifice.
