Olivier Leflaive Bourgogne Blanc "Oncle Vincent" 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

The 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. It is not a complex wine, but it is clean and fresh. It displays satisfactory Puligny character on the finish, even if it cuts away too quickly. This is a wine that has great flexibility for matching with a bunch of lighter dishes as well as a variety of occasions and will not disappoint.

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
