    Brice de La Morandière, great grandson of the founder, Joseph Leflaive, represents the fourth generation at the head of the Domaine. In 2015, after an international career in industry, he succeeded Anne-Claude, pioneer in biodynamics. It is with the same philosophy of respect for the great terroirs, humility toward the forces of nature, and relentless pursuit of excellence in viticulture and in winemaking that the Domaine will continue to grow in the future.

    Originally from Saône et Loire, in southern Burgundy, Pierre Vincent is the son of Charolais cattle breeders. From a very young age, he has always been attracted by professions related to life, nature and science. His passion for wine was born when he perceived the magic of the winemaker’s profession and the alchemy that exists between the work in the vineyard and what is found in the bottle. In 2000 he trained as an oenologist. Later, he was technical director of the Domaine de la Vougeraie from 2006 to 2016, then general manager of the Domaine Leflaive from 2017 to today. In 2010 and 2014, Pierre Vincent won the title of Best Red Wine Winemaker at the International Wine Challenge in London, one of the most prestigious competitions in the world.
