Bourgogne Blanc "Cuvée Oligocène" 2010, Patrick Javillier

This white Burgundy has a lovely nose dominated by orange blossom and orange sponge cake. Here is sweetness, there is freshness. A touch of garden mint, lemon and marzipan. Beautiful poise on the nose. Full citrus flavours, satisfying breadth and an enlivening pithy finish. Perfectly constructed. Could age gracefully for another 3-5 years. Scores 27-28/30 for a Bourgogne blanc.
