Tasting Notes

  • BURG

    Burghound, June 2018,
    Score: 91-94pts

    A pungent nose consists of wood toast and reduction. Once again though there is a lovely sense of energy and freshness to the surprisingly refined broad-shouldered flavors that display focused power and seriously good length on the balanced, dry and sappy finish. This is more refined than usual and a wine that should age exceptionally well. Drink 2025+

Producer

Olivier Leflaive Frères

In 1984 Olivier Leflaive, who had been working at Domaine Leflaive, with his uncle, Vincent, decided to start his own domaine. With his uncle Vincent and brother Patrick's help, he quickly built up his own distinct reputation. When Vincent died, Olivier was left part of Domaine Leflaive, but left to fully concentrate on his own négociant business.In 1988 Franck Grux became the winemaker and with his help, over the years, wines of increasing quality emerge from this small négociant. Olivier Leflaive has established some other high quality vineyard holdings, in all about 12ha, in several Bourgogne villages to complement his négoce bottlings.

Region

Bâtard-Montrachet

Bâtard-Montrachet is a great white Grand Cru in Burgundy's Côte D'or. Its vineyards are located onthe slope beneath Le Montrachet, in the Côte de Beaune. Bâtard-Montrachet's soils are heavier than those surrounding it, made up of brown limestone and gravel, which pave the way for rich, nutty, honeyed and heady wines with good structure. They are not as elegant as those from Chevalier-Montrachet and are broader and weightier than wines from Montrachet.
