Domaine Leflaive

France Burgundy Puligny

Domaine Leflaive is the most prominent name in Puligny-Montrachet, and arguably the most famous white Burgundy producer.

The earliest roots of the domain go back to 1717 but its foundation has mostly been associated with Joseph (1870-1953), an engineer who participated in the creation of the first French submarine. Following his marriage to Camille Biétrix du Villars from the Dauphiné, his career took a different course and Joseph started to look after the family vines in Puligny-Montrachet. In 1920, he replanted and enhanced the vineyard that had suffered from the phylloxera crisis, with the help of his estate manager François Virot. Together, they chose rootstocks that were better adapted to each parcel of land, and the Leflaive family gradually started to sell their wine under their own label and to a private clientele.

Joseph was succeeded by two of his sons, Vincent and Joseph-Régis, who ran the property together; however, it was under the stewardship of Vincent’s daughter Anne-Claude (1990-2015) – a biodynamic viticulture pioneer – that the domaine became a leader in Burgundy’s biodynamic movement. The whole property was converted biodynamic in 1997.

Today, Anne-Claude’s nephew and Joseph’s great grandson, Brice de la Morandiere, is at the helm, making him a 4th generation leader. In recent years, the estate has expanded with nearly 3 hectares replanted in Puligny, 7 hectares acquired in the Mâconnais and with the creation of a new vineyard planned for 2020 in the Hautes Côtes de Beaune.
