Meursault Clos de la Velle, Olivier Leflaive 2017
The vineyard sits below the village, at the foot of the hillside, adjacent to Château de la Velle, a magnificent 13th century property. Deep, rich top soils over a rocky base enable good year-round drainage.
The wine undergoes 16 months of aging, 4 months in stainless steel tank and then in 100 % oak barrels (20% of new oak)
It has the power and generosity typical to Meursault with fine acidity and elegant finish.
