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 Puligny-Montrachet comes from 12 different parcels, mostly planted on calcareous clay and pebbles. Here the nose is admirably elegant for its level with acacia blossom, white peach and a citrus note that can also be found on the pure, racy, defined and lightly stony middle weight flavours that culminate in a clean, dry, focused and driving finish.
