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

Meursault

Meursault is the first great white wine area that one stumbles upon on leaving Beaune. Unlike other white dominated appellations in Burgundy, Meursault has no grand cru vineyards. It nonetheless has significant flair and power which make up for this deficiency. Indeed, if tasted blind some of these wines could even surpass other Burgundian grand crus. They are no fainting daisies. This may partially be due to Meursault's lower water table which enables the roots to delve deep in the soil picking up many trace minerals and which further stresses the vines. In addition, the cellars are more profound and cooler, enabling long fermentations, which increase complexity and longevity. Some interesting red wines are also made.
