Winemaker's Notes:

This wine is vinified according to the "cuvée ronde" principle, meaning the blending of wines from different and complementary lots. In recent vintages, 12 different parcels in the appellation of Puligny-Montrachet have comprised the blend.

This is a glorious wine of very distinct aromas: almond paste, ferns, exotic fruit, white flowers with discreet acidity on the palate and a smooth, impressively long finish.

About Oliver Leflaive:

Olivier Leflaive was formed in 1984 by Olivier and his brother Patrick. Unlike a conventional negociant who buys finished wines, the firm actually vinifies a wide range of Burgundian appellations from grapes and must (or juice) and now owns 25 acres. Under the supervision of winemaker Franck Grux, the wines are vinified, blended, and aged exactly as they would be at a top-rank domaine.
