Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Avize 16 40, Valentin Leflaive, Champagne, France NV
Regular price £64.65
A great Champagne combining delicacy, purity and finesse. The pale yellow colour with emerald green highlights an elegant effervescence. The mineral and iodine nose opens with white flowers and a citrus cocktail. The palate is straight, chalky and intense, always carried by a chiselled texture and a long and saline finish.Sparkling 12.5%
The Leflaive family is renowned for its exemplary work across the most prestigious appellations on the Côte d’Or, in Burgundy. With this backgound it is no surprise Valentin Leflaive applied the family know-how with huge success to plot selections in the Champagne region from 2020. A proportion of the wines are aged in old Burgundy barrels which have previously been used to age the Puligny-Montrachet and Montrachet wines of the Maison Olivier Leflaive and which now help to bring out the complexity of these Champagne cuvees. A new player in the Champagne sector, Valentin Leflaive is also at the forefront of wines provenance and transparency, with each cuvee proudly bearing its very own characteristics – while the letters express the terroir, the numbers indicate the year of the base and dosage.
