Leflaive

Domaine Leflaive is the most famous estate in Puligny Montrachet, and possibly the finest Chardonnay producer in the world.  Leflaive’s history in Puligny dates back to 1717, but the domaine itself was founded by Joseph Leflaive in 1905, when he purchased vineyards in Puligny-Montrachet which had been ravaged by phylloxera and replanted expanded them. Upon his death in 1953, his sons Vincent and Jo took over the running of the estate, and are widely credited with building the reputation that Domaine Leflaive enjoys today.

In 1990, cousins Anne Claude and Olivier Leflaive took over the domaine, although Olivier left in 1994 to set up his own negociant business. Anne Claude converted the vineyards to biodynamic methods and is considered a pioneer of that movement in Burgundy. After her death in 2015, her nephew Brice de la Morandière has taken over.  Leflaive produces Grand Cru wines from the most famous vineyard in Puligny Montrachet:  Montrachet, Chevalier-MontrachetBâtard-Montrachet, and Bienvenues Bâtard-Montrachet.  They also produce several 1er Cru wines, the most important of which is probably the Le Clavoillon, which was one of the wines included in the 1976 Judgment of Paris.
