Olivier Leflaive is considered a winemaker among the cult status internationally. The Leflaive family has been making wine in Puligny-Montrachet for 18 generations! There are many who are obsessed with the Burgundy style that is aromatic and pure of terroir. Olivier Leflaive does in fact have vineyards across many appellations all over Burgundy. This allows Olivier to form lasting relationships with many of the growers supplying his grapes. It also allows the family to spend more time on the winemaking and ageing process, allowing for more individuality for each terroir. Olivier and his brother, Patrick, are always strengthening their business model; they now call themselves Olivier Leflaive Freres.
Typically you would see Premier Cru level wine with the name of the Cru following the name “Rully;” however this 1er Cru is a communal one indicating the wine comes from multiple Premier Cru vineyards. The wine is aged in neutral oak.
