  La Table d'Olivier Leflaive
This has to be a wine buff’s dream location. What a simple concept and how successfully delivered! Here you have the chance to taste a whole range of burgundies over a simple yet excellent set menu. Those who have been regular visitors will remember Pascal Wagner who oversaw the transition over to the new Hotel. As happens, Pascal has moved on to, I think, take a degree and he has been replaced by Julie Leflaive, Olivier’s daughter, who happily for us speaks excellent English. The format is that you work up from the basic chardonnays to the top wines. These are only tastings, so the glasses are not heavily charged, but the selection makes for a most enjoyable lunch. 

The original “La Table” that we have visited several times was such a successful formula that the Leflaive brothers have acquired a house on the opposite side of the square and opened a larger restaurant and a 13 bedroom hotel. The hotel (La Maison d’Olivier Leflaive) is very elegant, combining a period building with modern fittings. The restaurant offers a menu that is designed to complement the range of Domaine wines that are divided into two flights. A meal like this in the heart of Puligny Montrachet? What more could one ask for? It is very popular, so booking is essential.
