The colour reveals emerald reflections and a fine effervescence. The nose is fresh, with notes of citrus fruits such as lemon, punctuated by notes of white flowers and a saline finish. The attack is very fine, chiselled with a nice volume in the mouth.

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 'negociant-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 Clement Galois. Both are from the Champagne region.
