THE BURGUNDIAN APPROACH
Present for generations among the most prestigious appellations on the Côte d’Or, the Leflaive family is renowned for its exemplary work. This skill in terms of excellence has been applied to plot selection in the Champagne region. Based on single-varietal approach can result in some wonderful interpretations, similar to the grand cru wines of the Côte de Beaune.
THE ORIGINS OF TASTE
There are many ways to judge a wine or a champagne. But these days, there are other essential criteria such as traceability and provenance. That’s why Valentin Leflaive Champagne, despite benefiting from the name of a great family, has also been given a code.
More than just a name – a code
ORIGIN echoes the wine house’s state of mind. Each cuvée has its own characteristics. While the letters express the terroir, the numbers indicate the year of the base and dosage. This modern approach underlines the assertiveness of a new player in the champagne sector – Valentin Leflaive – which is all about transparency.
The pick of the crop
The plot-by-plot approach is applied down to the smallest detail. Beyond choosing a single varietal to make one cuvée, the decision was taken to work with specific plots, those with the best orientation, those destined to reveal the best of the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes.
