Winemaker Notes

The village of Meursault is an important appellation for Maison Olivier Leflaive as it is the home of chief winemaker Franck Grux. The Maison typically produces up to 10 cuvées including Premiere Crus; Perrières, Charmes, Genevrières, Poruzots and Narvaux.

A wine with a fine aromatic intensity of almond, hazelnut, apple and a balance between smoothness and freshness on the palate.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 94
James Suckling
The density and richness to this wine is outstanding. Sliced apples, pineapples and straw. Medium- to full-bodied, dense and brightly acidic. Excellent depth. Drink and enjoy on release.
Range: 93-94
BH 91
Burghound.com
Firm reduction masks the fruit. Otherwise the medium-bodied flavors possess a sleek mouth feel with good delineation and energy suffusing the caressing but intense finale that is markedly citrus-inflected. This needs to develop better depth but the underlying material appears to be present for that to happen.Range: 88-91
WS 90
Wine Spectator
A mix of apple, peach, melon and spice flavors are the hallmarks of this generous, balanced white. Ends with a mouthwatering lemon note and light spice accents. Drink now through 2021.
D 90
Decanter
From vines formerly part of Domaine Leflaive. Notes of apple, pear, white flowers and subtle toasted wheat precede a full-bodied, glossy palate, its ample, expansive style underpinned by good concentration, grip and cut. Drinking Window 2019 - 2028

Olivier Leflaive Winery Video

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.

Known to offer a magical balance of smoothness and freshness, Meursault's quality is hard to rival. The village lies in the middle of Côte de Beaune, just south of Volnay. Meursault is said to mean “mouse’s jump” because in the past the plots producing Pinot Noir and those producing Chardonnay were no more than a mouse’s jump from one another. Today the village is almost exclusively Chardonnay. A tiny bit of Pinot Noir is produced here with the best coming from Les Santenots on its northern side near Volnay.

While there are no Grands Crus, Meursault’s numerous acclaimed Premiers Crus can compete with any other top-notch white Burgundy. Some to know are Les Perrières, Les Genevrières, Les Charmes, Le Poruzot, Les Bouchères and Les Gouttes d’Or.

Meursault produces outstanding village level wines as well. In general great Premiers Crus and even village level Meursault (Chardonnay) have enticing aromas of lime peel, tropical fruit, crushed rocks, spice and hazelnut. On the palate there is a wonderful balance of brightness and a seductive length with flavors of white peach, pineapple and citrus.

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
