Valentin Leflaive Champagne reflects a life-long ambition of Burgundy`s Olivier Leflaive and his family to produce an exceptional sparkling wine. Named after Olivier's son, it brings together the expertise and traditions of Burgundy and Champagne and offers a unique interpretation of this region's grape varieties and terroirs.

Launched in 2015, Valentin Leflaive was granted the status of négociant-manipulant' in 2020 enabling the company to manage the whole production chain including the purchase of grapes. A boutique winery was opened in Oger with a traditional ageing cellar dug deep into the chalk. Chef de Caves Christophe Pitois, who looks after the important relationship with the growers, is assisted by talented enologist Clément Galois. Both are from the Champagne region.

Offering a fresh and innovative approach, each cuvée has a unique code on the label with the letters referring to the terroir while the numbers indicate the year of the base wine and the dosage (e.g. in Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs CV 17 50, CV' means Cramant and Vertus, 17' is the year the base wine was blended while 50' refers to 4.0 g of sugar per litre).

Made exclusively from the Chardonnay varietal from the finest terroirs on the prestigious Côte des Blancs, this cuvée is exceptionally fine. Created with precision, it offers a unique interpretation of champagne, underscoring its complexity and minerality. With a dazzling color topped off with delicate hints of gold, this blanc de blancs leaves nobody indifferent. In the mouth, a taut attack wakes up the taste buds while the spirit marvels at touches of citrus that open up over a floral backdrop.

The color reveals golden yellow reflections and a fine effervescence. The nose is expressive, with notes of ripe fruits such as white peach punctuated by brioche and toasted aromas. The attack is greedy and creamy, complex with a beautiful aromatic palette and a finish on refreshing bitters evoking lime.
