- Home to the negociant's longtime, head winemaker, Frank Grux, Maison Olivier Lefalive produces nearly a dozen different bottlings from Meursault, mostly from Premier Cru sites. For their AC release, they vinify each plot separately and blend after about a year in the cellar. The cuvée is matured in Allier oak barrels, one in five of which are new, and then rested in bottle for a year before release.
