- Olivier Leflaive is a negociant house in Burgundy's Côte d'Or. The house produces a wide range of wines predominantly from the Chardonnay grape variety, from both village- and region-level appellations, and from some of Burgundy's most famous vineyards, including Le Montrachet.
In 1990, Olivier Leflaive was given the reins of the Domaine Leflaive estate, alongside his cousin Anne Claude Leflaive. He left in 1994 to set up his own negociant business. Today, Olivier Leflaive has 17 hectares (42 acres) of estate vines, as well as approximately 100ha (247 acres) of growers' vines. These are spread across the Côte de Beaune, Côte Châlonnaise, and Chablis, although the most important holdings are in Meursaultand Chassagne-Montrachet.
Olivier Leflaive makes wines from several Grand Cru vineyards, including Corton-Charlemagne and Bâtard-Montrachet, and several notable premier cru vineyards, such as Meursault Charmes and Puligny-Montrachet Les Pucelles.
This superb white Burgundy is fresh and vibrant with tangy acidity, sweet pear and vanilla notes, classy oak and good firm firm acidity on the finish. An energetic wine that races across the ultra complex palate, ending in a superbly long aromatic finish.
- "Sweeter and richer than many bottlings from the same domaine, this still superb wine conforms to the very impressive house style: There's some leesy weight to the wine, but it's driven by freshness, a hint of struck match and pear and citrus fruit freshness. The balance is well judged, as ever at Olivier Leflaive" 94 points - Tim Atkin MW
