Olivier Leflaive has been making this wine, from a 40-year-old vineyard, for 7 years, and we happily select it again – for its potential and value. The 1st Growth plot is on sloping land north of the village, near the road leading to Chassagne-Montrachet. In 2020 it gave 13.5 degrees of natural alcohol, was 100% de-stemmed, then fermented for 18 days in vat, before being drawn off into 30% new oak barrels. Colour is rich, purple-ruby, aromas being vibrantly intense and fresh. Palate attack is impressive, with crunchy fruit, well-judged structure and refreshing tannins (for drinking 2023-2028).
