Olivier Leflaive ‘Récolte du Domaine’, Puligny-Montrachet

We are thrilled to be again offering these rare treasures from Patrick and Olivier Leflaive’s ‘Récolte du Domaine.’ This is their 10th vintage from vineyards they own, which were previously part of the family’s Domaine Leflaive.

“With rainfall around 50% down on norms from April to August, and 20% more sunshine than in a normal year, we knew this would be a race against hyper-concentration,” winemaker Frank Grux told us. He went on: “Picking took place between 21st and 31st August, with naturally high sugars, but without going beyond 13.5 degrees – giving fruit and lemony-limestone character with a little bit of vigour…”.

These vineyards are all either bio-dynamically or organically cultivated. With the exception of the Meursault and Chassagne-Montrachet, which were more recently replanted, the vines all date from the 1950s and 1960s. Old vines naturally give low yields, and these wines are some of the most concentrated, intense and thrillingly harmonious of all white Burgundies we know. There is a particular grace, depth of flavour, silky texture and astonishing length in this range that makes the heart skip a beat.
