We have been a client uninterruptedly for Olivier Leflaive’s outstanding wines ever since he started the business, with his brother Patrick, in 1984. Many wines come from their own domaine, and an increasing number from vineyards which they manage throughout the year, including the picking. Winemaker Franck Grux, with his right-hand man Philippe Grillet and their teams, are tightly focussed on the identities of each village and plot. They are severe in side-lining not only less-than-perfect grapes on the sorting tables, but also any barrels which do not merit inclusion in their finest selections. Thanks to our long-term links with this family business we have privileged, early access to many of its rarest, best-value and finest wines – several being exclusively reserved for HH&C..
