Olivier Leflaive Freres O Lef 05 Bour Bl les Setille 2005

Member Review by GoldFork:

Well it's no surprise that I got to this bottle a little late. That being said there were signs of life, though they were fleeting. At first sniff/drink I was overwhelmed by minerals. By about mid glass I got a brief preview of what this wine once was. Fruity aromas, pear, and melon, followed by lasting minerals, with crisp acidity. Then nothing for the rest of the bottle. My fault for buying a "Manager's Special" that I knew was outdated.

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
