On the nose and on the palate: a very beautiful aromatic palette of white flowers such as spring hawthorn or linden, and fruit mixed with notes of hazelnuts and toasted almonds.

It is a wine to keep with successive tastings to measure its development and capture its peak which should appear around the 2030s. The serving temperature is between 12 to 14 degrees.

It is Olivier's grandfather, Joseph Leflaive, who, in the aftermath of the 1st World War and the bankruptcy of his steel plant in Saint-Etienne, will initiate the expansion of the estate, his investments in Burgundy being all he had left.

The estate becomes a family farm of 35 hectares. His son Joseph Régis, insurer, and his brother Vincent took over in 1953.

The house quickly acquired its titles of nobility, in particular thanks to the arrival in the 1970s of air conditioning in Puligny, a considerable advance for this village built two meters above the water table which did not have underground cellars.
