OLIVIER LEFLAIVE ALOXE CORTON 2014 - Straits Wine
 

OLIVIER LEFLAIVE ALOXE CORTON 2014

Region: Burgundy, France

Grape: Pinot Noir

Tasting Note

A wine on red fruits in its youth with a more animal side, leather, mushroom as it ages. The structure is robust and of a good length.

Ideal with grilled red meats, but also with soft, washed rind cheeses such as Époisses or Ami du Chambertin.

About the Winery

In 1982 Monsieur Olivier Leflaive became co-manager of Burgundy’s Domaine Leflaive, along with his uncle Vincent, and later with his cousin Anne-Claude. In 1984 while at the helm of the great Puligny-Montrachet estate, Olivier decided to create his own company.

It was an enterprise distinct from Domaine Leflaive, with no animosity or bad blood. The goal of Olivier Leflaive, quite simply, is to produce great wines. Olivier had the experience to know that there are no secrets to this approach: everything starts in the vineyards with good grapes.  Today, the estate covers some 17 hectares, and is the result of carefully-managed acquisitions over the years.
