OLIVIER LEFLAIVE Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru 2016
Wine Region: Burgundy - France
Tasting notes: Wine of great finesse, its bouquet is complex: mineral fragrances, pear, spices. The attack is fresh and mineral on the palate, structured with a fine length in the mouth. A wine of great class to savour within a few years.
About the winery: The Leflaives can trace their Burgundian history back to Claude Leflaive who made his home in Place du Monument in Puligny Montrachet in 1717. Since then the family has always owned vines in Burgundy. Olivier Leflaive's philosophy involves producing great wines, with the utmost simplicity. Their expertise and experience in buying grapes allow them to have total mastery over vinification and wine maturation. Each Cuvee benefits from an individual approach, keeping the spirit of the estate and ensuring the authenticity of each terroir is fully respected.
