2015 Olivier Leflaive Chassagne Montrachet....$64.99

Rated 91/100 The Wine Spectator

2015 Olivier Leflaive Rully Les Cloux 1er Cru...$28.99
Though round in profile, this is undercut by vivid acidity, remaining well-delineated. Apple, lemon and subtle stone flavors play out from the start to the long finish. Drink now through 2024. 400 cases imported
Rated 90/100 The Wine Spectator

2015 Olivier Leflaive Meursault Charmes 1er Cru....$92.99
An attractively fresh and bright nose reflects notes of various white orchard fruit, petrol, citrus peel and a whiff of oak. There is a more refined mouth feel to the round, forward and beguilingly delicious medium weight flavors that culminate in a citrusy, dry and well-balanced finale. This well-made effort should drink well both young and with 5 to 8 or so years of bottle age.
Rated 91/100 Allen Meadows, Burghound
