Olivier Leflaive produces this wine from vineyards in the village of Saint-Romain. Situated close to the three major white wine communes of the Côte de Beaune: Meursault, Puligny-Montrachet and Chassagne-Montrachet, Saint-Romain enjoys nearly identical geology with its more famous neighbors. Situated behind the village of Auxey-Duresses and west of Puligny and Chassagne, the vineyards of Saint Romain have southeast facing slopes, protected by impressive rock formations on the west and east. Elevations rise to 450 meters with soils of white marl and limestone. Fermentation and aging are carried out in 100% Allier oak, with about 10-15% made up of new barrels. This wine from a lesser-known appellation offers high quality Chardonnay at very attractive prices. Burghound said "A cool and restrained nose of green fruit and citrus peel give way to racy, intense, detailed and again lightly mineral-infused flavors where the finish is clean, crisp and agreeably dry."
