Olivier Leflaive

Located on the higher level, this well-exposed to South-East climat is generally early during the harvest. The brown limestone sloped soil is shallow. The style of the wine is fairly full-bodied, like Pommard, the neighboring village. Our cuvee is produced with the purchase of grapes from several small plots in this terroir.

Until the last day, the 2021 wine year is trying. Marked by severe episodes of frost between April 5 and 9 which significantly reduced the harvest, the vines awakening was difficult, and the months of April and May were rainy and cool. Until the harvest, which began on September 20, the brutal weather changes set their tempo: responsiveness and constant attention are necessary. Fortunately, the lull in June allowed the flowering to take place without incident and veraison was favored by good conditions which set in from mid-August.

A fine and elegant wine: nose crunching fresh fruits, a refined and velvety substance.

Grape: 100% Pinot Noir
