Why do we love it?

A Chardonnay from its homeland, Burgundy, is always great news, let alone coming from the oldest family in the area. The Bourgogne Blanc 2017 Olivier Leflaive is a unique, classic, fine white wine and a typical reflection of the variety and the region.

Joseph Leflaive after World War I and after having gone bankrupt decided to turn to the vineyard land he had in Burgundy. Over the years he expanded and the next generations took over. In 1984, Olivier Leflaive decided to make his own winery. His advantage is that he knows the oldest and best producers of Burgundy, from which he gets grapes for some of his wines. His philosophy is to simply make amazing wines. And we believe he does. Bourgogne Blanc 2017 Olivier Leflaive is produced from grapes coming from top vineyard sites in Cotes de Beaune, Cote Chalonnaise, and Hautes-Cotes de Beaune.

After the fermentation, it remains in a stainless tank and on its fine lees for 4 months. Then the 80% of the wine, matures in oak barrels for 11 months.

You can drink and enjoy it now but will get even better over the next 3-4 years.

PAIR IT

with pasta carbonara, turkey fillet stuffed with gruyere and bacon, or grilled sea bass with butter sauce.

Tagliatelle with mushroom sauce

  • ½ kg of fresh mushrooms
  • 1 clove of garlic chopped
  • 1 tbsp. of lemon juice
  • 3 tbsps. of olive oil
  • 1 tsp. of salt
  • freshly ground pepper
  • 1 tbsp. of chopped parsley
  • 1/2 kg tagliatelle pasta
  • 1 glass of white wine
  • 1/4 cup of cream
  • 3 tbsps. Parmesan cheese and as much as you like for serving

Clean the mushrooms. Cut the edges and then slice them and mix them with the lemon juice.

In a large frying pan add the olive oil and put it in a medium - high heat and when it heats up well, add the garlic stirring well to keep it from sticking and not burn. Add the mushrooms, stir well and cover the pan with a lid. Sauté for 4 minutes stirring frequently.

Remove the lid and add salt and pepper according to your preferences. Stir occasionally and   allow them to absorb their juices and become brown (about 5 minutes).

At the same time, in a pot, boil some water and prepare the tagliatelle according to the instructions of their packaging.

Pour a glass of white wine in the pan, preferably from the wine with which you will accompany the plate.

Add cream and grated Parmesan and let it simmer by lowering the heat, for 3 -4 minutes until it thickens. Remove the pan from the fire, add the pasta, mix well and add the parsley. Serve with grated parmesan cheese.
