Grower-Champagne from the Valle de la Marne. For those that look for luxury without compromising their values.
About The Makers:
David Levasseur is a passionate nonconformist. His micro-grower Champagne house, set up by his grandfather in the 1940s and assuming its name from his father Albert, produces around 35,000 bottles per year from organic grapes. Here in the heart of the Montagne de Reims national park, David has embarked on a sensory journey to unpick the intricate terroir of his little corner of Champagne, while giving a leading role to Pinot Meunier, too often the supporting act.
Clara, Our Sommelier, Says...
Organic Champagne blend dominated by Pinot Meunier, from David’s oldest plot; Les Gautelleries, planted in 1973. The rue du Sorbier is home to David (at number four) and his family winery (at number six). With a mid-lemon colour and flavours of vibrant citrus, the wine is really quite fruity, with some custard tart notes and a fine mousse.
For real fans of small-producer and grower Champagne. There's enough oomph in the palate, and enough generosity in the nose to match with our Shamembert. An easy way to make a Wednesday that little bit extra.
