About the winery:
Present for generations among the most prestigious appellations on the Cote 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 a single-varietal approach can result in some wonderful interpretations, similar to the grand cru wines of the Cote de Beaune.
Each Cuvee 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. For example, in Avize|15|40, 40 refers to 4.0g of sugar per litre, corresponding to an extra brut.
