      Tasting Notes
      Olivier Leflaive Montagny 1er Cru 2016

      The philosophy of Olivier Leflaive is to produce simply great wines. There are no secrets to this – everything starts in the vines with good grapes. Olivier, Franck and their team are lucky to have strong relationships with some of the best winegrowers on the Côte, people who grow their vines with care and attention.

      Although the quality of the harvest is key, vinification and ageing also play a major role in bringing out the essence of each appellation. Franck Grux and Philippe Grillet make it their daily task to ensure the quality of the wines and respect for the terroir. As such, the estate’s approach is to treat each cuvée individually.

      Located at the southern end of the Côte Chalonnaise, the Montagny AOC only produces Chardonnay.

      12 months (whose 2 months in stainless steel tank)
      100 % oak barrels (whose 15% of new oak)

      Full and round on the palate with notes of minerality, spices and hazelnut. It is fresh and pleasing in the first two to three years with seven years aging potential.

      FOOD PAIRINGS
      Ideal with white meat, cheeses such as the goat's milk cheeses, I.E. Beaufort, le Comté, l'Emmental or le Saint-Paulin.

      "There is just enough reduction to mask all but the citrus elements of the nose and I would suggest decanting this. Here too there is good volume and punch to the lightly stony middle weight flavors that possess fine intensity on the youthfully austere acid-tinged finish that is slightly edgy.
      87 points."
      (Allen Meadows, Burghound, April 2018)
