In 1981, after working as an artist in Paris, Olivier Leflaive returned to his roots and came back to Burgundy to help run the family estate with his uncle Vincent. In 1984, he created the Olivier Leflaive company, with the help of his brother Patrick and his uncle. He was a trailblazer in the region, deciding to buy in grapes and musts to vinify them himself.
