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.

Its name derives from 'Pul' which means 'marais' (marsh). Puligny is on small pockets of water which prevent building of underground cellars.

Tasting notes:
'This white comes on softly, offering aromas and flavors of butterscotch, vanilla, pastry, floral and white peach. Remains open and turns tense and fresh on the lingering finish. Drink now through 2024.' – Wine Spectator, 91/100

'This famous wine from our domain expresses noble and distinguished aromas with notes of citrus, beautiful minerality and toasted scents. The mouth is elegant and tonic with a very long persistence.' – Winemaker

Terroir:
This A.O.C. is at the bottom of the hill, on a brown soil from the North of Meursault to the South of Chassagne. The soil is clayey limestone with a lot of stones. According to the place, the style is a little different but it often combines elegance and richness. We are lucky to have a representative of all the climats of A.O.C. which are more than twenty one years old.

Viticulture:
Maximum yield authorized of 57 hl/ha utilizing a sustainable wine-growing method harvested 100% manually.
Vinification:
At their arrival in their cellar, the grapes are immediately and carefully pressed with a pneumatic press, using 30% whole berries and 70% crushed grapes. Finning and filtration takes place after.
