BRAND IDEA
It all started with a crazy dream — to create an outstanding world-class wine in Russia. 15 years later, this wish came true: Lefkadia became the first wine in the country that received 91 points from the editor’s board of the most important critic of the planet, Robert Parker. This is a new classic, blockbuster wine. Power, concentration, pressure. Patrick Leon is the author and ideological inspirer. For a long time, he was the winemaker of the first grand cru of Bordeaux Château Mouton Rothschild, and then created the cult wines of the New World Opus One and Almaviva. Lefkadia was his last project in this great company.
THE NAME MEANING
Translated from Greek "the country of white poplar" - this is how the ancient Greeks called one of the colonies on the coast of the Krasnodar Region. Indeed, a large number of white-leaved poplar grows in the valley. The leaves of this tree have a dark and light side. For us, these leaves are an allegory of the Greek philosophy of wine consumption.
STYLE
Ripe, dense, rich wines in the style between Patrick’s homeland Bordeaux and the New World. They need extra aging, decantation, and the most serious approach.
Terroir
Heavy red clay in areas where the grapes reach the most ripeness to achieve a high concentration of flavor and aroma.
"Before our family came, the traditions of winemaking in the valley were completely lost, so we built it from scratch, taking the style of our favorite wines as a basis. Lefkadia stays true to the idea of ​​its creators, Patrick Leon and my father Mikhail Ivanovich Nikolaev. It is a luxury, powerful, concentrated wine that reflects the love to California and Supertuscany."
