Georges Laval Brut Nature 'cumieres' 1er Cru Champagne Nv

90 Points - David Schildknecht - The Wine Advocate: "Laval’s NV Brut Nature L0110 – roughly half Chardonnay, plus both Pinot and Meunier – delivers a fascinatingly pungent nose and firm, adamantly dry palate performance that call to mind diverse legume sprouts and leafy greens as well as singed buckwheat pancakes, in a matrix of fresh lemon juice and clam stock. (There is no question that you get all of your basic food groups in imbibing this unique libation!) Charred nuts and grains as well as sprouts and leafy greens make for undeniable finishing piquancy, but the liveliness of lemon along with a lick of saliva-inducing salinity steer the long finish just this side of outright bitterness or excessive austerity. I suspect that this will be best served over the next two years, but depending on what Laval is willing to open for me next year, perhaps I’ll be able to give better advice about cellaring."
