2019 Meursault Les Vireuils, Olivier Leflaive Frères

Less than half the volumes of a normal year came from this site, tucked up at the top of the village on the border with Auxey Duresses. The cooler hilltop position helped the wine retain a terrific mineral drive in 2019, matched by ripe, rich fruit. The weight of a little glycerol gives this wine that classic Meursault weight. Highly satisfying.

2019 Meursault Les Vireuils, 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.
