Olivier Leflaive Bourgogne Blanc "Oncle Vincent" 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

This 2013 Bourgogne Oncle Vincent is a homage to Vincent Leflaive, who was essentially a second father to Olivier. It is sourced only from old vines in excess of 25 years within the Puligny district and is limited to 1,500 cases. The nose has a little more presence and complexity than the Les Setilles with light chalky scents emerging with aeration. The palate is nicely balanced and fresh on the entry. *-Wine Advocate*The debut 2012 vintage of this wine was one of our most popular white burgundies this year. Highly recommended.

The Leflaive family has always had a few hectares of vines in Burgundy, in addition to their farm. Just after the First World War, Olivier’s grandfather, Joseph Leflaive was faced with the failure of his steel factory in Saint-Etienne. His investments in Burgundy were all he had left and he decided to enlarge his wine estate. It became a family-run operation covering some 35 hectares. His son, Joseph Régis, was in insurance and along with his brother Vincent, decided to take over the reins in 1953. The estate soon began producing top-flight wines, mainly due to the arrival of air conditioning in Puligny in the 1970s. This was a major step for winemakers in this village which sits two meters above the water table and as such, had no underground cellars. Read less
