Chardonnay Cote d’Or France
An assemblage of vineyards in Puligny-Montrachet and Meursault. The former delivers floral notes, precision and steely flint characters to the wine whilst the latter contributes richness. The yields are restricted and demand continues to increase with each vintage, but Domain Olivier Leflaive refuses to compromise on quality.
Domaine Olivier Leflaive retain vineyards in the famous Cote d'Or appellations of Puligny-Montrachet, Premiere Cru Meursault and Premiere Cru Chassagne-Montrachet. Les Setilles is a dependable staple of the estate portfolio, vinified with parcels appropriated from loyal suppliers and vignerons in Puligny-Montrachet and Meursault. Olivier Leflaive enjoy a close relationship with some of the finest growers along the Côte d'Or. People who love managing vines just as much as they enjoy the wine which is the fruit of their work. The calcareous clay soil vineyards face southeast to south and lie on a flat, even terrain. Each recolte is hand crafted into a cuvee of elegance and finesse reflecting the virtue of Cote d'Or.
Pale yellow gold colour. A tantalising combination of fresh citrus and apple notes, enriched with vanilla and hints of warm brioche, a lovely wine, finishing long, clean and satisfying.
