With his family based in Puligny-Montrachet, Olivier Leflaive knows a thing or two about the grand crus of his village. This Bâtard-Montrachet is intensely textured, concentrated and ripe, and it exudes equal amounts of acids. Powerful yet elegant, the toast note is a subtle expression in this rich wine. This for long-term aging.
