The Leflaive family has been embedded in Puligny Montrachet since 1717. Through the 20th century, Joseph Leflaive began acquiring parcels of exceptional 1er Cru and Grand Cru vineyards mainly in the village of Puligny-Montrachet and was one of the precursors of domain bottling (mis en bouteille au domaine).
Olivier, Joseph's son, worked at Domaine Leflaive with his uncle Vincent, and later with Anne-Claude, his cousin. In 1985 Olivier started his own business Domaine Olivier Leflaive, buying grapes and managing vineyards. In 1995, Olivier Leflaive parts ways with the family Domaine Leflaive to concentrate on his own project.
Today, Domaine Olivier Leflaive holds 50 acres of vineyards in, Puligny-Monrachet, ChassagneMonrachet, Meursault and Pommard. Since 2010, Domaine Olivier Leflaive has recovered its ownership in legendary vineyards managed by Domaine Leflaive after the lapse of an 18-year lease to the Domaine.
Domaine Olivier Leflaive also produces exceptional wines from Côte Chalonnaise and Côte de Beaune.
