Olivier Leflaive – “Montrachet” Grand Cru – 2014
Montrachet is the most important grand cru vineyard for the Chardonnay grape variety in the côte de Beaune; it is a small 8-hectare patch of land divided between the communes of Puligny and Chassagne Montrachet. The parcel lies between 250-300 meters above sea level and enjoys soils rich in brown marl and limestone ideal for water drainage, giving the wines important structure, delicate aromas and never wines of great depth or opulence. The winery here produces about 800 bottles a year, where it matures for about 20 months between barriques and steel tanks.
There are probably no words to describe the quality and exquisiteness of this wine. Supreme.
