Laval Cumieres Brut Nature
Vincent Laval is one of our favourite grower Champagne producer. Not only are his wines fantastic, but he's also a lovely man. Over the years he has become one of the most sought after producers and we're delighted to be his exclusive UK distributor. Amazingly the vineyards have been organically farmed by his father since the early 70s, a time when everyone else in Champagne thought he was crazy for doing so. Since Vincent took over the winery from his father in the 90s he's been working the vineyards biodynamically too, which is not easy in such a cool and damp climate.
Although the vintage is not stated on the label this is made only from the 2015 vintage. Vincent likes to express a single year as he feels it gives more purity. It's a blend of 1/3 of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. Really harmonious and precise, and despite this being a zero dosage Champagne the acidity is integrated beautifully. Drink now but will also keep for one or two decades.
