Vauversin Grand Cru Extra Brut 2010
The Vauversin family have been making wine in the Grand Cru village of Oger since 1640.
Laurent Vauversin is the current custodian, having recently taken over the family business from his father Bruno. Laurent’s grandfather took the decision to start making wine on a commercial scale back in 1930 and 84 years later Laurent is continuing the family tradition of growing and producing great Champagne.
The 3ha vineyard in Oger sits on the chalky Côte des Blancs escarpment South of Epernay, an area renowned for its impressive Chardonnay Champagnes. The Laurent’s attitude and ethos towards wine making is clear; be less intrusive, simpler and allow the full flavour and incredible subtlety of the Chardonnay grape assert itself. This ethos is typified in the vineyard’s ongoing organic conversion effort.
