Tasting notes: Volnay wines are feminine if only one word shall be used. Evolving throughout red fruits and violet aromas, their roundness makes them very seducing, with soft or tougher tannins. It is a distinguished and elegant wine, known as a great representative of the Cote de Beaune.
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.
