Olivier Leflaive’s village level Puligny Montrachet is sourced from 21 separate plots throughout the appellation. The unique characteristics of each plot combine in the bottle to provide a wine of great richness, complexity and ageability. 

The Leflaive family has resided in the village of Puligny Montrachet for centuries and it is now home to Maison Olivier Leflaive. With its variety of 1er Crus and a shared portion of Grand Crus Le Montrachet, Bienvenue-Bâtard Montrachet and Bâtard Montrachet, the terroir of Puligny is second to none. Each year Leflaive produces close to a dozen unique cuvées from these world class Chardonnay vineyards.

    Noble and distinguished aromas with notes of citrus, beautiful minerality and toasted scents. The mouth is elegant with a very long persistence.

    Baked apple, peach, spiced pear, subtle pineapple and mango flavors, lemony acidity
  • Taste

    Beautiful minerality, acacia blossom with depth and persistence
  • Finish

    Layers of toast, complex texture, hazelnut, baking spice, fresh baked pastries

"Fermented and aged in wood, this is a rich wine. Its spice, ripe pineapple and mango flavors and dense texture show intense freshness as well as layers of toast, a complex texture and a short aging potential." - Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast, 92 points


Origins

Olivier Leflaive was born into Domaine Leflaive and was co-manager of the domaine before he started Olivier Leflaive in 1985 in order to have some wines to play with outside Puligny-Montrachet. He stepped away from Domaine Leflaive after the endeavor started to blossom. The wines are hallmarks of elegance and purity rather than muscle and are more than worthy of the famous Leflaive name.
