Bourgogne Blanc "Cuvee Oligocène" 2010, Patrick Javillier
Icing sugar, lemon tart, orange blossom, white flowers. Lovely weight on the palate combining lemon, ripe apple and a bright apricot flavour. Ridiculous opulence for a bourgogne blanc. A touch of residual sugar. Fresh and tangy finish with good length. Fully open now and mature on the palate. Bouquet will likely evolve over the next 2 years but at the expense of the fruit and freshness on the palate. Scores 25/30 for a Bourgogne blanc. Compare with the tasting note for the Cuvee Oligocene 2010 from August 2013.
