Winemaker Notes

This famous wine from our domain expresses noble and distinguished aromas with notes of citrus, beautiful minerality and toasted scents. The mouth is elegant and tonic with a very long persistence.

Ideal with grilled veal served with mushrooms, grilled saltwater fish and goat cheese.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 93
James Suckling

This is a real Puligny with lemons and cooked apples. Hints of straw and limestone. Full- to medium-bodied, layered and clean. Bright finish. A beauty. Savory and salt at the end.

Range: 92-93

BH 91
Burghound.com
Fresh and appealingly layered aromas grudgingly reveal notes of white peach, lavender, citrus zest and hint of oak. The round, caressing and utterly delicious medium-bodied flavors possess a relatively sophisticated mouth feel before ending in a dry, clean and mildly austere finish that offers very good but not special depth.Range: 88-91
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Focused, charming and open, sporting peach, apple and butterscotch flavors. The acidity shines through on the crisp finish. Should come together nicely in a year. Drink now through 2023. 1,030 cases imported.
D 90
Decanter
This is very nice, and is certainly one of the best examples of this appellation in 2016. Notes of citrus zest, spring flowers and white peach precede a glossy, cool and elegant palate, with succulent acids, good concentration and a taut finish for the vintage.

Oliver 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.

Puligny-Montrachet Wine

Cote de Beaune, Burgundy

View all products

A source of some of the finest, juicy, silky and elegantly floral Chardonnay in the Côte de Beaune, Puligny-Montrachet lies just to the north of Chassagne-Montrachet, a village with which it shares two of its Grands Crus vineyards: Le Montrachet itself and Bâtard-Montrachet. Its other two, which it owns in their entirety, are Chevalier-Montrachet and Bienvenues-Bâtard-Montrachet. And still, some of the finest white Burgundy wines come from the prized Premiers Crus vineyards of Puligny-Montrachet. To name a few, Les Pucelles, Le Clavoillon, Les Perrières, Les Referts and Les Combettes, as well as the rest, lie northeast and up slope from the Grands Crus.

Farther to the southeast are village level whites and the hamlet of Blagny where Pinot Noir grows best and has achieved Premier Cru status.

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.
