The mystery behind the translation of our terroirs into our wines should not prevent us from searching for a finer and more scientific understanding of what constitutes them, and particularly our soils and subsoils.
This is what we have sought to understand thanks to the passionate and fascinating work of Françoise Vannier, a geologist and her associate Emmanuel Chevigny, a soil scientist, at the service of winegrowers. Thanks to them, we have mapped the geo-pedological composition of the Domaine Leflaive plots.
We have made a series of 3 educational videos. Françoise Vannier explains the geography of the plots and the composition of the subsoil. Sylvain Pellegrinelli, vineyard manager, explains how he uses this information in viticulture. Pierre Vincent concludes by explaining how the wines reflect both the place from which they come and the care that the Domaine's team of winemakers has taken in managing their vines.
