THE STORY: The philosophy of Olivier Leflaive is to produce simply great wines. There are no secrets to this – everything starts in the vines with good grapes. Olivier, Franck and their team are lucky to have strong relationships with some of the best winegrowers on the Côte, people who grow their vines with care and attention. Although the quality of the harvest is key, vinification and ageing also play a major role in bringing out the essence of each appellation.
