Domaine OLIVIER LEFLAIVE Batard-Montrachet Grand Cru 2018
Wine Region: Burgundy - France
Tasting notes: "The 2018 Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru has turned out nicely, opening in the glass with notes of buttered orchard fruit, honeycomb, wheat toast and marzipan. Full-bodied, rich and textural, it's fleshy and layered, with bright acids, good depth at the core and a long, delicately toasty finish. Bottled under Diam, it will offer a broad drinking window." - William Kelly, Wine Advocate
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.
