Les Sétilles

A signature wine from the House. Sétilles is the cadastral name of the place in the village where Olivier Leflaive's cellar is located.

Until the last day, the 2021 wine year is trying. Marked by severe episodes of frost between April 5 and 9 which significantly reduced the harvest, the vines awakening was difficult, and the months of April and May were rainy and cool. Until the harvest, which began on September 20, the brutal weather changes set their tempo: responsiveness and constant attention are necessary. Fortunately, the lull in June allowed the flowering to take place without incident and veraison was favored by good conditions which set in from mid-August.


Below 230m altitude, producing AOC village wines is not authorized. Often a simple path separates the Bourgognes area from its well-named neighbors. The soil is quite rich in colluvium and small pebbles. The wine comes from a blend of around sixty selected plots located both in the village of Puligny-Montrachet and also in Meursault. Three plots of the Côte Chalonnaise and ten in the Hautes Côte de Beaune complete the supplies. The wine is produced like the greatest.

Tasting note

This wine is expressive. The aromas of yellow fruits, peach, grilled almond and lemon peel dominate on a mineral background. The attack is full and warm with a slightly smoky finish.
