Beaune Clos des Monsnieres Blanc Domaine Olivier Leflaive 2018

Olivier Leflaive studied at business school before heading to Paris, where he lived a rather bohemian life in the 1970s. He returned to Burgundy in ’81 to manage Domaine Leflaive with his uncle Vincent. After a 15 year hiatus as a negociant he returned to take up his share of the vines.

Winemaker Franck Grux now makes 85-90 different cuvées, vinifying the equivalent of 120 hectares – 17 of which are estate-owned. The focus is on elegance and finesse over power

Enclosed by drystone walls on three sides and backing steeply onto the Montagne de Beaune, Clos des Monsnières offers a beautiful panorama of Pommard and the Côte. Quite shallow clay-limestone soils over ironstone gravel enable Chardonnay to ripen slowly.

The result is a tense and mineral-driven style, with lots of apple and citrus fruit. A little new oak shows through, with subtle spicy notes and creaminess but the focus is on the wonderful density of the fruit itself. A unique aniseed and herbal touch is the defining feature of this cuvee, that the winemaker recommends pairing with sashimi.
