2010 Chassagne-Montrachet Premier Cru
The 2010 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Clos Saint Marc from Maison Olivier Leflaive is superbly balanced. Despite a contrasted year in Burgundy, this creation is in line with the delicate yet tense style of Chassagne-Montrachet wines. The topaz-tinted, yellow wine reveals a neat and precise nose with toasted almond, butter, and delicate lemon hints. The palate offers a forward attack, with delicate white peach and pear flavours. Olivier Leflaive’s extraordinary skills show in the freshness and elegance of the wine.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
One of the more beautiful and expressive wines in this lineup, the 2010 Chassagne-Montrachet Clos Saint-Marc possesses gorgeous depth and delineation, but no sense of heaviness whatsoever. Crushed rocks and spices add complexity on the long, focused finish. Anticipated maturity: 2012+.
