OLIVIER LEFLAIVE Meursault 1er Cru "Sous le Dos d'ane" 2014
Wine Region: Burgundy - France
Tasting notes : In colour, very pretty green golden, the nose being fragrant with honey and spices: the mouth sumptuous and rich, with elegant middle palate and lovely texture, bounce, finesse and silkiness.
About the winery : The Leflaives can trace their Burgundian history back to Claude Leflaive who made his home in Place du Monument in Puligny Montrachet in 1717. Since then the family has always owned vines in Burgundy. Olivier Leflaive's philosophy involves producing great wines, with the utmost simplicity. However, a great wine is the fruit of work, from the wine to the cellar. It is there force indispensable to maintain long lasting relationships with rigorous selected winegrowers. This expertise and their experience in bying grapes allow them to have total mastery over vinification and wine maturation. As such each cuvee benefits from an individual approach, keeping the spirit of the estate and ensuring the authenticity of each terroir is fully respected. The aromas of white flowers, peach, grilled almond and lemon peel dominate on a mineral background. The attack is full and warm on the palate with a lively and greedy finish.
