Tasting Note

Jancis Robinson: 17/20pts

This is the lowest and most northerly of Pulignys Premiers Crus, where the soil is at its deepest and richest on the slope. The wine has broad shoulders and plenty of volume, typical of the vineyard, but there is also a pleasing bright and confident energy. This spectacular Puligny 1er Cru is powerful, savoury and spiced, but its certainly not lacking in citrus freshness. Deep and long with a creamy texture bold and super assertive!

Winemaking Winery


The Leflaive family have been Burgundy producers for many decades but, in 1984, Olivier Leflaive set up his merchant house producing wines under his own label from his own vineyards in Puligny-Montrachet. To establish his estate, he purchased 12 hectares of land in prestigious appellations including village Meursault to the Grands Crus of Montrachet and Criots-Batard-Montrachet. Today, Olivier Leflaive controls all the winemaking and the ageing of the wines. Each vintage benefits from an individual approach and guarantees the authenticity of each appellation.
