More than just a name, a code
ORIGIN echoes the wine house’s state of mind. Each cuvée has its own characteristics. While the letters express the terroir, the numbers indicate the year of the base and dosage. This modern approach underlines the assertiveness of a new player in the champagne sector – Valentin Leflaive – which is all about transparency.
The careful selection of varietal and plot is identified by the first letters on the label. CA means that the grapes in the cuvée CA/15/40 grew on the rich chalk soils of the superb plots of Cramant and Avize Premiers Crus. The vintage is given by the first two numbers, in this case 2015, the year the base wine was blended.
