Olivier Leflaive Meursault "Narvaux" 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

"Rich and intense, packed with peach, apple, spice and stone aromas and flavors. Hangs together nicely, making this approachable now. Fine length." - Wine Spectator *(92 Points)*"Although this is not a premier cru, this 33-acre vineyard sits right next to some of Meursault's finest vines. The wine is mineral, tight and textured— a wine that should age. With touches of oak, spice and intense yellow fruits, it is ripe while still closed at this stage. It certainly needs aging and will be ready from 2019." - Wine Enthusiast, Cellar Selection *(91 Points)*

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
