Olivier Leflaive Chevalier Montrachet 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

"Here cooler and more elegant aromas are comprised mostly of green apple, citrus fruit and white flowers scents that are nuanced by subtle wet stone notes where the latter element can also be found on the wonderfully precise, intense and refined middle weight plus flavors that possess terrific punch on the explosively long and markedly dry finish. Like the Pucelles this is not super complex but my score offers the benefit of the doubt that more is on the way with a few years of cellar time." -Allen Meadows, Burghound (92 Points)*Limited Quantities*

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
