2013 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Truffières, Olivier Leflaive Frères

As its name suggests, this vineyard was formerly a truffle bed. It lies relatively high up on the slope and produces suave wines that are the epitome of Puligny. Hugely expressive on the nose, this is a multi-faceted wine of breeding. Notes of crushed rock, green apple and apricot blossom are all bound together by a hugely refined structure.

2013 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Truffières, Olivier Leflaive Frères
Olivier Leflaive

One of Burgundy’s most recognisable names, Olivier Leflaive produces some of the Côte de Beaune’s finest whites from a mixture of domaine-owned vineyards and bought-in grapes. Olivier founded the company in 1984, and it has grown in quality and prestige ever since. With 17 hectares of their own vineyards in some of the region’s most prized plots, and using only the very best sources from their bought grapes and must, the wines being produced are now up there with the region’s very best.
