    Champagne Georges Laval "Cumières" Brut Nature (2018)


    Champagne Georges Laval "Cumières" Brut Nature (2018)

    While it is not labeled with its vintage on the front, since 2013, this cuvée has always come from a single harvest. This year marks the release of the 2018 vintage. All the fruit, as the name suggests comes from the Laval vineyards in Cumières. It is a blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. While historically the percentages were 50%, 25% and 25% respectively, things have changed at Laval. With the 2017 vintage, he stopped producing Rosé and is using that fruit in Cumières. He is also making more Les Chênes, shifting away from using Chardonnay from that vineyard in Cumières. The 2018 release is fantastic. Its nose hints at both red and citrus fruits. On the palate, it is broad and rich, with that classic intensely chalky note one finds from Cumières. What you really notice with this amazing wine is its ability to be delicious, complex, and mineral all at the same time. The energy, its brilliant acidity, all keep you coming back sip after sip. While I love tasting this wine in its youth, I must urge you to treat this like you would the best vintage Champagnes. Put bottles in your cellar, buy at least 6 bottles. We recently had a bottles from the 2012 base vintage, and it is just starting to explode. 5 to 10 years from the vintage is a good rule when it comes to cellaring Cumières. This is a must for any serious lover of Champagne. 9007 bottles produced.
