Olivier Leflaive has unmatched access to superb grapes from across their home commune, to complement those from their own domaine. Bunches come from many different plots, some from the Meursault side, others from near the Chassagne border, and others from the heart of the village, just below 1st Growths like Clavoillon and Perrie`res. At the time of tasting, in May 2022, the wines were finishing their secondary, malolactic fermentations at different speeds, so the final cuve´e had not yet been realised. Our tasting snapshot shows green-golden colour of medium depth, with perfumed, charmingly pungent fruitiness on the nose. This gives first impressions of gentleness, then a fruit intensity which thickens in mid-palate, finishing creamily rich, vibrant and long. On past performance, and given the great success of the 2021 whites here, this will be a beautifully integrated, superb bottling (for drinking 2024-2030+).
