Georges Laval 'Les Hautes Chèvres' 1er Cru, Brut Nature, Champagne, France 2016 (dis. 03.21)
This tiny estate is producing some of the most profound, flavorful and terroir driven Champagne within the tiny 1er Cru of Cumières. Vincent is 4th generation and now running the property. Not only that, but the estate has been organic since 1971. Only made in exceptional vintages, this Blanc de Noir spends 10 months in oak fallowed by 4 years in cave before being released. This is a wine of complexity and certainly one for the cellar.
Grape: Pinot Meunier
Soil: Limestone Clay
