Eight fine white Burgundies   

Bouchard Corton Charlemagne 2000 Burgundy
Classy. Quite delicate minerally, toasty nose. The palate is nutty and full with lean, savoury fruit. Quite taut and minerally. Very good/excellent 92/100

Bouchard Corton Charlemagne 1998 Burgundy
Evolved, complex nose is herby, minerally and cabbagey. Very tight and engaging. Beguiling. The palate is nutty, rich and minerally with great depth. Complex and seamless, this is drinking perfectly now. Excellent 95/100

Faively Corton Charlemagne 1999 Burgundy
Deep coloured. Very rich, toasty nose is quite classy. Full nutty palate of great intensity. Very rich and concentrated with a slightly herby edge. Very good/excellent 94/100

Olivier Leflaive Corton Charlemagne 2000 Burgundy
Very mealy, nutty nose is rounded and bready. The palate is rounded, evolved and bready. A very nutty, mealy expression of Corton Charlemagne: quite classy, but I’m not keen on the style: it is too bready. Very good/excellent 91/100

Bouchard Meursault Genevrières 2000 Burgundy
Quite rich and toasty with lots of bready, oaty flavour. Quite classy. Very good/excellent 90/100

Olivier Leflaive Meursault 1er Cru Les Poruzots 2000 Burgundy
Open nose is smoky, herby and minerally – perhaps a bit of reduction. Savoury, structured palate. A really nice white Burgundy showing great balance and some complexity. Drinking now. Very good/excellent 92/100

Olivier Leflaive Puligny Montrachet Les Vergers 2000 Burgundy
Taut, lemony and minerally with some complexity. Lovely mineralic depth to the complex palate, which is taut and quite elegant. Very good/excellent 92/100

Olivier Leflaive Puligny Montrachet Les Garennes 2000 Bugundy
Seamless, savoury, bready nose which is slightly mineralic. Quite focused. The palate is taut and minerally with good acid and nice complexity. Nice savoury, minerally style. Very good/excellent 93/100
