2018 Montagny 1er Cru, Olivier Leflaive Frères, Côte Chalonnaise

80% of the wine comes from Bonneveaux, one of the best sites in Montagny, with the rest from Coeres, and a touch of Perrieres. Nice texture and finesse, pretty pure and juicy with lovely energy, too. Very saline and silky, and excellent juicy finish. Not overripe, just lovely balance.

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.
