Producer Info: Though the Laval family's roots in the Champagne region date back to
1870, it wasn't for another hundred years that the family discovered the true potential of
their land's soil. After this discovery was made, they knew they were destined to create
their own Champagne label and in 1979 Michel Laval was born. In the early years of the
winery, it was common practice throughout Champagne for farmers to use herbicides,
pesticides and other chemicals in the vineyards. However, even then, Michel Laval set
themself apart by pioneering more natural and sustainable farming methods. Today,
current owner and winemaker Florian Laval emphasizes the importance of organic and
biodynamic farming, as well as ultimate care for the land and its sustainability for the
future generations to come. We had the pleasure of visiting them on our recent Club
Member Trip to Champagne this past June and their hospitality is second to none! This is truly a special bottle and I am honored to be the importer and thrilled to bring a glimpse of the incredible Laval Family to you.
