Valentin Laflaive, Grand Cru, Le Mesnil Sur Oger 15/50, Blanc de Blanc Champagne
By Pete's Provisions
WHY WE LOVE THIS WINE
Its all in the detail, this wine notes dates of disgorgement. The 100% chardonnay gives depth and rich flavours a great boutique champagne. This airy Champagne with light emerald reflections is characterised by a straight and precise nose where lime and tangerine are close to flint. Its fresh and harmonious mouth reveals the minerality of flint and chalk. Its long and salivating finish is punctuated by pleasant salinity.
ABOUT THE WINERY
Valentin Leflaive Champagne owes its balance and precision to the wine house’s uncompromising approach. The selection of plots through the harvesting by hand to tailored vinification. Besides a benevolent eye, one has to have patience. One can only attain perfection by allowing time to take its course.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.
