Olivier Leflaive 2017 Meursault 375 ml


375 ml "Half Bottle"

"The 2017 Meursault Village is pretty and expressive, bursting from the glass with notes of Anjou pear, hazelnuts, fresh peach and white flowers. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, supple and elegantly fleshy, with a delicately textural attack and a lively but open-knit profile. This charming wine represents a very creditable effort for Olivier Leflaive.

The 2017 is a great success for Olivier Leflaive and the house's able winemaker Franck Grux. While the scale of this important négociant house sometimes wins it short shrift from Burgundy collectors, the truth of the matter is found in the glass. The whole range this year is very solid indeed, and with Leflaive's "Récolte du Domaine" range, Grux has evidently pulled out all the stops to produce wines that can confound the prejudices of even the most skeptical. Many of these bottlings are derived from Olivier Leflaive's share of the Domaine Leflaive vineyards, which only recently reverted to him, and these cuvées in particular are worth every effort to seek out."
