This cuvée is created only from our best vines located in the territory of Puligny-Montrachet – 8 plots in total which represent a little less than 4 ha of vineyard in sustainable method. Soil is made up of calcarious clay and silty clay.

The aromas of this wine express the fruits with white pulpit (pear, peach…), with hints of butter. Beautiful in the mouth, with a creamy texture, and a distinct note of lemon zest. The selection of vines for this cuvée allows us to produce a white Burgundy more aristocratic, more tense and serious in intensity – more Puligny!

Outer quote mark Named after the legendary Vincent Leflaive, one of the great Burgundian personalities of his day, this comes from five different vineyards in Puligny-Montrachet, four of which belong to Vincent's nephew, Olivier Leflaive. Fermented in 15% new wood, it's a sappy, leesy, stylishly balanced white with lemongrass and grapefruit flavours and a twist of aniseed. Drinking Window 2020 - 2026.


Outer quote mark Here too there is a whiff of sulfur present on the wood trimmed aromas of white-fleshed orchard fruit where various citrus elements lurk in the background. As is usually the case, the delicious medium weight flavors possess a bit more volume and concentration as well as better depth on the bitter lemon zest-inflected finish. Worth checking out for its level. *Burghound Outstanding!!*
