    Winemaker Notes

    Situated in the center of the Côte de Beaune, the Puligny-Montrachet appellation is among the most celebrated white wines in the world. The soils are calcareous clay, rich in pebbles with good drainage and excellent exposure to the sun. It 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.

    Olivier 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.

    With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
