Today the helm is transferred to the 4th generation with Brice de La Morandiere's, Anne-Claude's nephew and great grand son of Joseph Leflaive the founder. We will continue with the same family philosophy of respect for the great ''terroirs'', humility towards the forces of nature and rigorous in it's relentless pursuit of excellence in wine making.
Fermentation: In stainless-steel tanks with indigenous yeast
Aging: 12 months in oak casks, 20% new, then 6 months in small, stainless-steel tanks.

A subtle but not imperceptible dollop of wood surrounds the overtly floral and more citrus-inflected nose of mostly white orchard fruit. The racy, intense and beautifully well-detailed medium-bodied flavors exude a refreshing salinity on the balanced, clean, youthfully austere and attractively dry finale. Good stuff.
