Scion of the legendary Leflaive winemaking family, Olivier founded his eponymous Burgundy house in 1984. Discreet in size and style by comparison with Burgundy’s big name houses, Olivier Leflaive has quietly but steadily forged an enviable reputation among its peers, and continues to impress not only for the sheer range of its wines but for their consistency of style and quality. Over the years, Olivier Leflaive has increased its own vineyard-holdings – comprising some of the most prestigious appellations and lieux-dits in Puligny and beyond – while sourcing grapes from long-term partnerships with over 120 small vine-growers. All viticulture is overseen by Olivier Leflaive’s highly-skilled technical team, Franck Grux and Philippe Grillet, whose knowledge of the region is matchless. ‘Les Sétilles’ Bourgogne Blanc is a long-time favourite of The Wine List’s staff and customers alike – a classic ‘all-round’ white Burgundy, impeccably styled from high quality grapes. While the precise recipe is a closely-guarded secret and alters subtly from year to year based on the style of the vintage, the wine is essentially a blend of grapes from the prized villages of Puligny Montrachet and Meursault.
This is a classic white Burgundy, beautifully wrought, from grapes with impeccable pedigree. The majority of the blend (85%) is aged in French oak barrels for eight months, enhancing flavour complexity and textural finesse. The wine is instantly seductive with its white blossom scent and supple orchard fruit, gently creamy on the palate, with a fresh mineral finish.
