Tasting notes:
‘A much more elegant nose reflects notes of acacia blossom white peach, essence of spiced pear and hints of mandarin and oak. There is fine richness to the generously proportioned but wellfocused medium-bodied flavors that terminate in a driving, linear and bone dry finish that offers excellent depth and persistence. This is a fine Puligny villages. 2024+.’ – Allen Meadows, Burghound, 89-91/100

‘The 2017 Puligny-Montrachet Village opens in the glass with a youthfully reticent bouquet of white peach, Meyer lemon and spring flowers, followed by a medium to full-bodied, elegantly textural palate with ripe but racy acids, a pretty core of fruit and good grip on the finish. There appears to be a touch more cut and structure here than is found in the house’s village level efforts from Chassagne-Montrachet and Meursault. 2021 – 2037.’ – William Kelley, Wine Advocate, 88+/100

About Maison Olivier Leflaive:
One of Burgundy’s most impressive names, Olivier Leflaive is recognised as much for the consistent quality and style of its wines as for the sheer breadth of its range. ‘Today, he is one of Burgundy’s top white wine producers and the maison wines match the domaine wines for their sheer quality, class and longevity!’ – Roland

The Leflaive family have been Burgundy producers for many decades but, in 1984, Olivier Leflaive set up his merchant house producing wines under his own label from his own vineyards in Puligny-Montrachet. To establish his estate, he purchased 12 hectares of land in prestigious appellations including village Meursault to the Grands Crus of Montrachet and Criots-Bâtard-Montrachet. Today, Olivier Leflaive controls all the winemaking and the ageing of the wines. Each vintage benefits from an individual approach and guarantees the authenticity of each appellation.
