White Burgundy (100% Chardonnay) from Maison Olivier Leflaive, one of Burgundy’s most impressive names, recognised as much for its consistent quality and style of its wines as for the sheer breadth of its range. 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. 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!.
