Oenologist and Technical Director for Oliver Leflaive

With over three decades of experience working in France’s most renowned vineyards, Franck Grux is a trained oenologist and seasoned Technical Director of Oliver Leflaive—located in the heart of the prestigious Burgundy wine-growing village of Puligny-Montrachet.

Growing up near Burgundy’s wine country, Grux’s curiosity and passion for vineyards was fermented at a very young age. He harnessed this passion by studying agriculture in secondary school at Lycée Viticole de Beaune and earned his bachelor’s degree in agriculture in 1982 from Jean Monnet University.

Grux advanced his specialization in wine making and viticulture by attending the University of Burgundy’s wine school in 1985 where studied to become a certified oenologist. With his immense knowledge and educational pedigree, Grux joined Olivier Leflaive in 1989 as the winery’s Technical Director and has held this coveted position for the past 30 years. He spends most of his time supervising all aspects of production and operations of the estate – from overseeing the growers and wine production to maintaining relationships with global distributors and retailers.

In 2015, Grux was integral in launching Champagne Valentin Leflaive—the winery’s first foray into sparkling wines in partnership with Erick De Sousa.

Known widely for his passion and erudition for winemaking, Grux is regarded by friends, family, and industry professionals as a steward and guiding force that has helped maintain the quality, integrity and global reputation of Oliver Leflaive wines over the past decades.
