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!

Zero dosage really lets the vinosity shine through. Dry, but in no way austere - rich fruit, and the leesiness lends welcome palate weight. Outstanding. (Disgorged 4/13)
