Olivier Leflaive Chablis Les Deux Rives 2008
Chablis Les Deux Rives is a blend of several terroirs on both sides of the Serein River, thus the name "Les Deux Rives" or "Two Banks." Chardonnay grapes are carefully selected from several suppliers. Different parcels are vinified separately in 100% stainless steel. The wine is blended and bottled young to preserve freshness and acidity.
100% Chardonnay. The Leflaive family has been rooted in Puligny-Montrachet since 1717. In 1984, Olivier Leflaive launched his own company called Olivier Leflaive Freres with the help of his uncle Vincent and his brother Patrick. He quickly established his own reputation amongst Burgundy's finest. In 1988, Franck Grux took over as a winemaker and still holds this role today. Over the two past decades he was able to establish strong, long-term relationships with the best growers and the quality of the wines is outstanding. Today, Olivier Leflaive Freres, owning about 37 acres of land, is known as a small negociant of high quality with a focus on the whites from the famous villages of Puligny, Chassagne, and Meursault.
