Cuvée Oncle Vincent

Cuvée homage to the owner of the winemakers "Saint-Vincent" and especially to Vincent Leflaive, uncle of Olivier Leflaive, who died in 1993, having made the reputation of the eponymous estate. He was a model and a valuable support for Olivier at the time of the creation of his wine house.

The 2020 vintage is a unique vintage. It is marked by historic precocity from budburst, with an advance of 3 weeks, until the harvest which took place entirely in the month of August. High temperatures associated with a lack of precipitation cause a significant water deficit as well as evapotranspiration phenomena in July and August. The absence of rain, on the other hand, allows the health of the grapes to be very satisfactory. The particular conditions of this vintage generate wonderful balances.


This cuvée "Oncle Vincent" is elaborated only from our best vines located in the territory of Puligny-Montrachet, i.e. 8 plots in total which represent a little less than 4 ha of vineyard in sustainable method.
