Notes

The philosophy of Olivier Leflaive is to produce simply great wines. There are no secrets to this – everything starts in the vines with good grapes. Olivier, Franck and their team are lucky to have strong relationships with some of the best winegrowers on the Côte, people who grow their vines with care and attention.

Although the quality of the harvest is key, vinification and ageing also play a major role in bringing out the essence of each appellation. Franck Grux and Philippe Grillet make it their daily task to ensure the quality of the wines and respect for the terroir. As such, the estate’s approach is to treat each cuvée individually.

Olivier Leflaive’s vocation is not just about making good wine. It is also about bringing a human face to the world of wine and breathing fresh life into it. Maintaining a personalized and convivial relationship with his clients, taking the time to share the richness, diversity and sensitivity of the world of wine through a complete oeno-touristic immersion from vine to glass – these are some of Olivier Leflaive’s other ambitions.

Tasting notes:
'Vibrant and toasty, with smoke, vanilla and clove notes augmented by peach, apple and lemon flavors, backed by a lively structure that leaves a clean, tangy aftertaste. Best from 2018 through 2028.' – Wine Spectator, 92/100

'A wine with a fine aromatic intensity of almond, hazelnut, apple and a balance between smoothness and freshness on the palate.' – Winemaker

Terroir:
It is the biggest village of la Côte de Beaune which produces mainly white wines. According to the location of plots, the soil is rich and deep (at the bottom of the hilside) or limestone and mainly in the 'mountain'. Their cuvee comes from a blending of about fifteen different but complementary plots in order to obtain rich and elegant wines.

Viticulture:
Maximum yield authorized of 57hl/ha utilizing a sustainable wine-growing method and harvested 100% manually.

Vinification:
At their arrival in their cellar, the grapes are immediately and carefully pressed with a pneumatic press using 80% crushed grapes and 20% de-stemmed grapes. Finning an filtration took place afterwards.
