Olivier Leflaive has unmatched access to superb grapes from across their home commune. Bunches come from 26 different plots, some from the Meursault side, others from near the Chassagne border, and from the heart of the village, just below 1st Growths like Clavoillon and Perrières. The wines are in 20% new oak, and now finishing their secondary fermentations at different speeds, so the final cuvée has not yet been realised. Our Spring 2021 tasting snapshot shows pale green-lemon colour and strikingly fresh aromas. Palate starts powerfully, with tightly-packed fruitiness, building to a long-sustained, invigorating aftertaste. On past performance, and given the magnificent success of the 2020 whites here, this will be a beautifully integrated, superb bottling (for drinking 2023-2030+).
