DOMAINE OLIVIER LEFLAIVE frères, Puligny-Montrachet
Brothers of Anne-Claude Leflaive, Olivier and Patrick run this estate with 12 ha of vineyards in the best climates of the Côte de Beaune. The wines, made in collaboration with in-house oenologist Franck Grux, are intense, purely defined with intelligent use of oak. In addition, they source grapes and must from a handful of dedicated growers.
Today, Olivier spends his time between his winery and greeting visitors to his “Table d’Olivier Leflaive” restaurant and guest house located in the heart of Puligny village.
The Bourgogne Chardonnay is an elegant and crisp white with unmistakable citrusy and mineral edge. The fruit is sourced from several villages in the Cote de Beaune, Olivier selects the grapes from growers with whom he has worked since 1984, and who owns well-located vineyards, most of them planted on limestone, slopey soils.
