Wine making

Harvesting is entirely manual, and pressing is carried out in Verzé in buildings purchased at the same time as the vines. After decanting, the musts are transported daily to Puligny-Montrachet for fermentation and ageing, under the watchful eye of Domaine Leflaive's technical team.

Vinification takes place in vats, and ageing lasts 15 to 16 months.
The result is a wine of great purity, both floral and mineral, with great energy and vivacity.

Pressing: Long, gentle pneumatic pressing, 24-hour decanting followed by settling.

Fermentation: 78% in stainless steel tanks, 10% in wooden tuns and 12% in oak barrels (40% of which are new).

Ageing: After 10 months' ageing on lees in fermentation containers, the wine is racked into stainless steel tanks and aged on fine lees for 6 months.

Homeopathic fining and very light filtration if necessary.
