Olivier Leflaive’s Vineyard

An initiation and a fascinating break at the heart of fine Burgundy wines. The Maison d’Olivier, an eighteenth century building in Pouilly-Montrachet offers glass by the wine and local fare in a fun, welcoming, convivial setting. Praise goes out to Olivier, the trilby wearing, dynamic wine maker. We grant him the prize for high class wine tourism. The programme is such fun: strolls in vineyards, visits to cellars, oenological workshops, tastings. His restaurant is a ‘must’ visit. Meals are served accompanied by tastings of the best vintages, throughout which the wine waiter explains the history and heritage of the wines on offer. A Meursault, Casse Tête, complex and well bred, which is grown on complex stony soil. The discovery of the Pernaud Vergelesse, a Grand Cru Corton Charlemagne, complex and mineral. A vineyard planted by the Emperor Charlemagne in 775, later be given to the Saulieu Abbey. The monks were happy and so are we! Tel.: +33 3 80 21 95 27 www.olivier-leflaive.com
