Expressive and complex, brioche, baked apple and lemon zest. One of my favorite growers.

Love Laval. Even with the slightly round ‘15 fruit.

Aromatics made you think old but the palate and finish was fresh vibrant and youthful

Utterly gorgeous grower Champagne. Its precision is what is most striking, perhaps closely followed by its complexity. A stunning way to kick off a meal at Maialino, one of New York's elite Italian restaurants that is simultaneously elevated and relaxed, formal but without any stuffiness.

Vincent Laval use to say he didn't listen to his father advices regarding wine and winemaking: "a starved profession". Despite his father "encouragement" he kept going taking care by himself of the 2,5 hectares as a Recoltant Manipulant making now 9000 bottles, certified organic since 1971.
From the Cumariot Premier Cru area, - Cumières's the name of the village close by Épernay on the right side of Marne, - here on this label we've got Chardonnay (50%), Pinot Noir (30%) Pinot Meunier (20%); it's a Brut Nature which means no sugar addition after disgorging. Every single details, from the biological treatment of the vineyard to the painstaking work in the cellar seems to combine each other to make this artisanal champagne a clean expression of authentic and juicy flavor, significant acidity, floral fragrances witnessing as well of such a preserved agricultural awareness. I do love Laval and his own substantial champagne!

ZING⚡️🍾⚡️
No dosage from one of the masters of organic and biodynamic viticulture. The drinkers future is bright when faced with an open bottle of this! 😎
