The wine

This Champagne GR 14 45 (GR = Graves / 14 = Year / 45 (4.5g) = Dosage) has a brilliant color with delicate golden reflections. The nose expresses freshness and minerality which blend with subtle notes of ripe citrus. The attack on the palate is chiseled and tense, supported by a mousse with a creamy texture. The citrus and stone fruit flavors harmoniously complement the freshness of the wine to give it a long and tasty finish.

Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker

Derived from the village of Grauves, a premier cru located on the other side of the Côte de Blanc's main wine-growing escarpment, Leflaive's NV Extra-Brut Blanc de Blancs Gr1445 is based on the 2014 vintage and was disgorged in September 2018 with four and a half grams per liter dosage. Offering up aromas of sweet confit lemon, yellow apple and warm bread, it's medium to full-bodied, fleshy and charming, with lively acids and a nicely defined finish. There's a touch less depth and complexity than is to be found in its rosé counterpart, but this is still a very creditable effort that's ideally adapted to service as an apéritif.
