Bourgogne Blanc "Oncle Vincent" 2015

Olivier Leflaive

This cuvée is created only from our best vines located in the territory of Puligny-Montrachet – 8 plots in total which represent a little less than 4 ha of vineyard in sustainable method. Soil is made up of calcarious clay and silty clay.

Vinification: Harvesting is done 100% by hand. Once grapes arrive in the cellar, they are immediately and carefully sorted and pressed with a pneumatic press. The wine spends 12 months aging, 3 of which are spent in stainless steel. Once finished, the wine is transferred to 100% oak barrels (15% new oak).

Additional Information

The aromas of this wine express the fruits with white pulpit (pear, peach…), with hints of butter. Beautiful in the mouth, with a creamy texture, and a distinct note of lemon zest. The selection of vines for this cuvée allows us to produce a white Burgundy more aristocratic, more tense and serious in intensity – more Puligny!

    "An enticing mix of lime blossom, seashore and citrus aromas signals this elegant, linear white. Citronella and nut oil flavors play out on the long, detailed aftertaste."

    "A whiff of matchstick character can be found on the equally pretty and ripe assortment of white orchard fruit and floral scents. As is usually the case there is a bit more size, weight and richness to the attractively textured middle weight flavors that are blessed with slightly better depth and length and less evident warmth. This is really quite good for its level and would make a fine choice for an all-around house white."
