The wine world lost a light this week, Anne-Claude Leflaive, of Domaine Leflaive passed away in Burgundy on April 6. I never had the pleasure of meeting her but from all accounts she was approachable and environmentally committed when it was neither chic nor trendy to be so. Here is a link to a wonderful article by Eric Asimov on her passing.
I lived in Dijon during University and the Leflaive name was one I knew even way back then. Anne-Claude Leflaive’s survivors include her husband, Christian Jacques and her three daughters Marine, Charlotte, and Claire. Here is a link to Bruce Sanderson’s piece for the Wine Spectator as well.
