Olivier Leflaive Freres

In 2010, Patrick and Olivier Leflaive launched the ‘Récolte du Domaine’ wines, a treasured arm of an already prestigious collection of wines of Maison Olivier Leflaive. The wines from Récolte are sourced from the original vineyards of Domaine Leflaive, reclaimed after a longstanding lease had come to an end of their once shared space. The meticulous care of the original biodynamic vineyard practices continued uninterrupted when these vineyards were returned to the Maison, complete with old-vines whose low yields allow for incredibly concentrated, perfumed wines to emerge. Burgundy insiders know that these can be the source of incredibly focused Burgundy wines that rival the famed houses, at a charming price.

The sloping terroir rests on a fairly marly and stony soil giving the wine a mineral-flint aspect. This wine skillfully combines aromas of dried fruit, hazelnut and orange, creating a harmonious and seductive aromatic palette. A perfect bottle to pair with crayfish quenelles or seared scallops.

“A heady fresh, lifted upper hillside fruit on the nose, yet clearly with concentration. This is quite tightly wound, backward but with intensity at the finish. This will make a striking bottle but needs time. Excellent length, and just the right balance between flesh and energy. Drink from 2027-2035.”
92-95 points, Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy, October 2023
