Olivier Leflaive Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2015
Olivier Leflaive Bourgogne Pinot Noir is a charming and straight forward wine. A fantastic introduction to Pinot Noir from Burgundy. Translucent cherry red colour in the glass, from which wafts a discreet and elegant fruity nose. The dry palate is straight and easy, balancing gracefully between dusty tannins, juicy acidity and a medium body. Fresh cherry, strawberry and raspberry flavour with hints of earthiness and vanilla.
100% Pinot Noir from 25-years-old vines. The fruit comes from different vineyards located on Côte de Beaune, Côte Chalonnaise, Hautes Côtes de Beaune and Côte de Nuits. The vineyards have an altitude ranging from 230–250 metres and calcarious and silty clay soil compositions. Sustainable practices in the vineyard.
70% of the harvest is done manually and 30% mechanically. Upon arrival at the cellar, the grapes go through a careful sorting in order to keep only healthy grapes at optimal ripeness. 70% of the grapes go through destemming. Alcoholic fermentation in open vats for 15 days. The wine then ages for 4 months in stainless steel tank and 8 months in 10% new oak barrels. No fining.Ageing potential: Drink until 2024
