The Leflaive family has always had a few hectares of vines in Burgundy, in addition to their farm.

Joseph Leflaive

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.

  • I looked at the wine list and I can't really tell what things cost because ... of the white Burgundies from Olivier Leflaive look pretty good, both under $90 at current rates. On the whites generally, the Burgs look pretty decently priced for the quality.  I'd pass on the Cali whites, only two and neither is worth traveling that far for.On the... Read More
