Creamy strawberries and red raspberries, minerals, long finish. Fantastic Rosé.

Zingy and fresh. Delicious on the first hot night of the year. Hello summer!

Gorgeous, with a most unusual flavor profile. This is a Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier blend—it is the Pinot Noir that really shines through. This is a small estate, with only 2.5 hectares under production and biodynamically farmed as well. Dark salmon with a very fine mousse. Distinctive rich, earthy notes, wild strawberries, freshly baked cherry pie and spice. On the palate, it's seductively structured, layered and intense. Vibrant, minerally acidity at the core, giving way to red fruit and a hibiscus tea note on the finish. Bravo!

Fresh strawberry and cherry, a touch herbal, blood orange, sappy and fresh acidity. Very vinous in character. My favorite of the 4 Laval this day.

This threw me for loup, a journey not often experienced. It's hard for me to fall in love with a wine in such short notice. Amazing complexity yet so easy to enjoy and appreciate, from the electric hue of pink to the lingering fresh raspberries on the palate. I want more please!

This is biodynamic farmed grapes at 50-50 Pinot Moir and Pinot Meunier. Spice and dusty strawberries. I really enjoyed this wine!

10/31/13 disg. Utterly beautiful now. Was a touch harsh when younger.

Beguilingly vinous. This is a thinker's champagne. I don't know exactly where to place it, but I know I want more. #lafete2015 standout
