Georges Laval Cumieres Premier Cru Brut Nature (Disg. 2/20)Regular price $92.00 Save $-92.00
Vincent Laval is the man behind his family's domaine in the heart of Cumieres. He has been farming his small patchwork of vines organically since 1971. In fact, Vincent is confident that his family's oldest holdings have never seen even a drop of chemical fertilizers, pesticides or herbicides in over 200 years. Total production at the estate is a mere 10,000 - 12,000 bottles (not cases!).
Cumières Premier Cru is a perfect reflection of the terroir of southern-exposed Cumières. Individual attention to each vine, perfect maturity, natural aging for 8 months in oak barrels bring out the original flavors and the aromas of their terroir and create the harmonious balance which is indispensable to the creation of our Brut Nature with no added sugar, nothing artificial.
"The NV Brut Nature Cumières (2017) makes me feel like I am in the cellar, tasting with Vincent Laval. A Champagne of tremendous purity and nuance, the NV captures all of the flavor intensity, drive and nuance that make the wines of Cumières so alluring. This release, based on 2017, sizzles with nervy energy. Time in the glass brings out layers of perfume and a whole range of red-toned fruits. In a word: terrific. Disgorged: February 21, 2020."
