Olivier leflaive En Primeur 2020

In the three decades since Maison Olivier Leflaive was established, it has quietly forged an impressive reputation, thanks to relationships with 100 or so small growers, from whom it sources grapes. These relationships lie in the hands of Franck Grux and Philippe Grillet, who run the vineyards and cellars.

For many years now, Olivier Leflaive has made special wines exclusively for Corney & Barrow from particular vineyards. We commit to purchase early in the year in order to secure allocations, as well as preferential prices.

 

The 2020s will be released shortly.

BOURGOGNE PINOT NOIR 2019

 This comes from five plots, just outside Pommard. Fresh red cherries and vanilla-cinnamon spice aromas. A joyously ripe palate of raspberry and strawberry fruit, succulent and crunchy, with a core of sweetness making for a sumptuously early drinking, approachable style. Lively and refreshing. 100% destemmed and vinified half in stainless steel, half in old oak barrels.

VOLNAY 2019

This wine comes from four plots, two purchased in 1995 and two in 2010, in the middle of the appellation: two in Les Lurets, one in Les Famines and another in Les Paux Bois. A delicate, pure berried nose of raspberry and roses, laced with winter spice. The palate is crisp and harmonious, with poised raspberry fruit and a rocky mineral aspect, with lingering blue-fruited perfume. 100% destemmed.

POMMARD 1ER CRU LES ARVELETS 2019

Les Arvelets is a 0.5 hectare south-facing sloping vineyard beside the domaine’s cuverie, whose red clay soils give high ripeness levels. Blackberry and blackcurrant on the nose, with nice undergrowthy aromas. The palate is pure-fruited, with blackberry and raspberry flavours delivering an impressive clarity of expression. Perfectly weighted, rich but with a sense of lightness, the fruit held in place by fine supporting tannins.
