A. Levasseur Noir de Terroir Extra Brut NV
Champagne Albert Levasseur is a very small grower house set up by David's grandparents in 1944, the diminutive 4.2 hectares of vines farmed by David since 2003.
Champagne is traditionally more about what happens in the cave than the vineyard, but David takes a very different approach, and is passionate about exploring the differences in the terroir around his family home. The Noir de Terroir is organic Pinot Noir from two small vineyards: L'Olivière in Cuchery (planted 1990) and La Fontinette in Châtillon-sur-Marne (planted 1998). All grapes from 2011 harvest, made in a dry style and only 1,500 bottles. Distinctive aroma of asparagus, rhubarb, nectarines and strawberries, some saffron and baking spice, structured with redcurrant fruit. Astounding achievement.
