A few years back, Vincent Laval told us about his taking over some additional family vineyards on the Montagne de Reims. The wine from these vines now make up the base wine of this much-awaited cuvée.
Notes of minerals, pear and citrus in the nose lead into a wine with gorgeous balance and persistence. The sophisticated balance between precise mineral precision and fleshy texture make this a wine with few precedents in our experience.
