Description

Silky, astonishingly harmonious and terrifyingly moreish. This non-vintage Champagne eclipses any rival in its category. Plenty of serious, vanilla pastry smells, icing sugar in the air that is tied down with white peach juice, a lemon curdy zing and ripe yellow apples. The only disappointment here is when the bottle’s drunk dry.

MEET THE PRODUCERS

André Levasseur

David Levasseur is a steadfast nonconformist. His micro-grower Champagne house, which was established by his grandfather in the 1940s and which assumes its name from his father Albert, produces little more than 30,000 bottles per year from solely his own 4 hectares of vineyards spread over 18 plots around the villages of Cuchéry, Fleury-la-Rivière and Châtillon-sur- Marne. These are organically farmed and certified for their high environmental value. Crucially the Marne Valley is a vital source of the wider region’s Pinot Meunier, as the minor blending grape thrives in the local area, and it is on Meunier that David unusually bases most of his wines. Here in the heart of the Montagne de Reims national park, David has embarked on a sensory journey to shine a light on the terroir of Champagne.
