Place du Monument, 21190 Puligny-Montrachet
Wine courses through the Leflaive family's veins, a heritage passed down like a treasure from generation to generation: Olivier is the 18th!
In 1984 he created "Olivier Leflaive" estate and his own trade house rade in the heart of wine-growing Burgundy. A few years later, Maison Olivier Leflaive is a unique signature of the Côte de Beaune.
In the heart of Puligny-Montrachet, Maison Olivier Leflaive, an authentic 17th century building overlooking the village square, offers seventeen charming rooms and two suites with terraces. At the head of the hotel, Julie Leflaive, 19th generation, made a point of highlighting the family tree. Here everyone has their own room with the story of each character in the Leflaive family.
Exposed beams, cut stones, large volumes and wooden floors give the place authenticity to remind visitors that Burgundy is a land of tradition. Art Deco, Art Nouveau, Pop, Modern or a touch of retro touches reflect this family saga.
The interior garden of the house is an invitation to tasting. At the table, the dishes are simple and always paired by great wines.
With its 100 hectares of harvested vines and its 82 climats including the famous Grands Crus Bâtard-Montrachet, Chevalier-Montrachet and Montrachet, the estate gives pride of place to these famous “Burgundy climates” while respecting traditional techniques. Like the very famous Puligny-Montrachet, all the cuvées bear the brand and the personality of the Burgundy appellations.
In order to make great wines, Olivier Leflaive keeps control over winemaking and aging. Harvesting by hand, aging in barrels perfectly managed by its passionate team, the know-how of the House signs elegant wines. The whites are extremely fine, the reds have a perfectly controlled intensity.
Very involved in wine tourism, Maison Olivier Leflaive offers tours of the vineyards to discover the famous climates of Burgundy, these historically delimited plots that give the wines their distinctive features. The nature of the subsoils and its influence, the classification of the wines, then the work of the vines and the winemaker, this visit gives the keys to understanding Burgundy wines.
The estate also offers cellar tours. The visit reveals the secrets of the harvest, fermentation, aging and bottling. Commented wine tastings (from appellations such as: Puligny-Montrachet, Bienvenues-Bâtard-Montrachet, Meursault, Saint-Romain, Corton-Charlemagne, ..) and lunches around typical Burgundy dishes are also offered.
