Olivier Leflaive Pommard 2018
Planted in a terroir with very different natures of soil, we have to choose a style without underestimate the entire and even a little bit rustic character which corresponds to the wines from Pommard when they are young. We chose to produce an elegant wine with the vineyards located mainly in the hillsides (Chanlins, Refères, Grands Poisots, Cras, En moigelot and La Croix Planet). The nature of the soil is mainly brown and limestone. The grapes from several plots are blended in the tanks.
