This wine had the gpood fortune of following the Potel 09 Chardonnay – it was always going to taste nice by comparison…
2009 Olivier Père et Fils, Santenay Les Coteaux Sous La Roche (blanc)
Medium-pale. The nose is quite buscuity/toasty bread with an underlying sweetness. In the mouth there’s lovely acidity and sweetness though to start it seems there’s a bit of a hole in the middle – give it a few minutes and the intensity increases and it comes into a good place. Everybody wanted a top-up from this one!
Rebuy – Yes
