Mind blowing. From a third of a hectare that contains a concentrated amount of red iron within a sea of limestone. There’s just a touch of residual sugar, which combined with the electric acidity reveals a wine of extraordinary depth and complexity. Flambéed peach, lime zest, lemon juice, and wet stone, with a salty and sweet finish that is hard to put into words. Stunning. — 10 days ago
Clos Saint Marc is a 4.2 acre walled vineyard on a hillside within the 1er Cru Les Vergers on the north border of the appellation overlooking St Aubin and Le Montrachet directly to the north. Olivier Leflaive’s 2010 is stunning. This bottle might even be better than the one I had on Christmas Eve last year. Lime peel, orange blossom, spiced apple, melon rind, oyster shell, and crushed white rock with racy acidity. What a wonderfully delectable pairing with garlic lemon butter scallops. — 20 days ago
