Les Longues Violes, Brut Nature

Georges Laval, Les Longues Violes, Brut Nature, 2012

RRP £433

The tiny Laval estate in the village of Cumières has been certified organic since 1971, and today Vincent Laval makes fewer than 15,000 bottles of Champagne a year. This is the first release of a new single-vineyard Champagne from Les Longues Violes, a parcel of old-vine Pinot Moir and Pinot Meunier. It’s dark and vivid in tone, marked by a vibrant energy that feels driven by viticulture and soil, and it’s long and densely fragrant on the finish, showing a remarkable refinement and complexity.
