When the Best Burgundy meets the Best Champagne

In France, when two people meet who love their vineyards and share the same passion for wine and terroir, what can be better than to create together a grand cru of friendship?

This is exactly what Olivier Leflaive, founder, with his brother Patrick, of the Maison Olivier Leflaive in Puligny-Montrachet and Erick de Sousa, from the de Sousa Champagne house, in the heart of the Côte des Blancs in Avize, decided to do.

As a result of this meeting, the Valentin Leflaive extra-brut Champagne was born, composed exclusively of Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs terroirs and matured partially in oak barrels. A tailor-made, high-quality, signature Olivier Leflaive Champagne, full of finesse and subtlety, having a brilliant robe with golden reflections, a nose that combines freshness and minerality leading to citrus and stone-fruit flavours in the mouth, and a mousse with a creamy texture. This premier cru Valentin Leflaive Champagne, born of a beautiful friendship, can be enjoyed as an aperitif or to accompany a chic and festive buffet … with friends of course!
