90 points Decanter

 No fewer than 65 parcels go into this commendably reliable cuvée, sourced from vineyards in Rully, Meursault, Puligny-Montrachet and the Hautes Côtes. It's lightly wooded, appealingly fresh and showing good citrus-like ping. (TA)  (10/2017)

Wine Spectator

 This is bright, showing lemon, apple and light spice notes on a sleek frame. Leaves a mouthwatering impression. Drink now.  (2/2019)

K&L Notes

Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy: "Classic sub Puligny-Meursault blend, mostly in barrel. Very light green tint. Lovely energetic bouquet, some lime-blossom, a little bitterness behind at this stage but the wood rounds it out very nicely. Delicious middleweight, lovely thread of energy through the middle and good length. 16,000 cases for two bottlings. Opens out very attractively at the back." (10/2018)

Is it possible to have an everyday Bourgogne? Why yes, it is. Lelaive's Bourgogne Blanc "Les Setilles" brings all the things I love in an old-school Bourgogne white. The nose is wonderfully typical of what the grape produces in this region. Flint, florality, and stone fruit pop from the glass. Great acidity matched only by the weight of the mid-palate. A dance of lemon and peach, weaving in vanilla and cream. With a dazzling finish, that is complex and long. This is a serious wine with the title of Bourgogne blanc!

The 2016 Setilles flew off our shelves thanks to a 91-point score and it happened to be one of the featured wines poured at the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. However, I prefer the 2017. It is a bright, energetic white with zesty flavors and aromas of lemon, orchard fruits, and a touch of salinity. Perfectly balanced with just a hint of oak, this complex, everyday white should be snatched up by the case! Sourced 50/50 from Puligny-Montrachet and Meursault, this is a stunning white wine value and a worthy successor to the delicious 2016!
Top Value! Drink from 2019 to 2021

Olivier Leflaive seems to always bring some amazing wines to the table at all price points. His Bourgogne Blanc is lively and full of lemon meringue, crunchy green apple, and clean chalk minterality that leaves your mouth water. Infinitely drinkable and ever so food friendly this should be in everyone's cellar!

A tropical, bright white Burgundy that shows how good Bourgogne Blancs can be when approached the right way, this is a fun option with great meringue notes, kiwi and peach overlapping a trace of the white stone in the region. A phenomenal value, and a good candidate for a house burg if you like a zesty option.
