Olivier Leflaive Meursault "Les Vireuils" 2013

60.00

Leflaive titles this Chardonnay with “Vireuils” (to go round) to reflect the act of taking a path around the vineyard in order to create this blend of fruit from the upper and lower plots of vines. The vineyard is comprised of 16 hectares of 40 year old vines on top of a stony, limestone rich hill near Auxey Duresses. The farming is done entirely by hand and is certified sustainable.

The 2013 vintage spent 16 months in oak (20% of which was new), and the result is a complex and full bodied Chardonnay. The nose is quite aromatic and leads to a beautifully delicate palate rich with notes of toasted bread and honey. The mid-palate is racy and pure with nice minerality. Revelatory when paired with chicken Alfredo or lobster.
