Olivier Leflaive – Récolte du Domaine, Puligny-Montrachet
2016 Burgundy En Primeur
We are thrilled to be again offering these gems from Patrick and Olivier Leflaive’s ‘Récolte du Domaine.’ This is their seventh vintage from vineyards they own, which were previously part of Domaine Leflaive.
Since winter 2009/2010 when Olivier and his brother took over these vineyards, there has been uninterrupt-ed continuation of Domaine Leflaive’s bio-dynamic vineyard cultivation methods, and this is being scrupulously maintained. With the exception of the Meursault, which was more recently replanted, the vines across the Domaine were planted in the 1950s and 1960s. These old vines give naturally low yields, and the resulting wines are some of the most concen-trated, intense and thrillingly harmonious of all white Burgundies existing. There is a particular grace, depth of flavour, silky texture and astonishing length in this range that makes the heart skip a beat.
Availability of each of the following wines is more limited than ever this year, thanks to the spring frost (consequently, we are not able to offer any Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Clos Saint Marc in 2016). Please let us know your requirements as soon as possible, to ensure an allocation.
