Four generations of the Laval family have been tending vines in Champagne and they have been producing estate bottled wines since the 1970’s. Georges Laval, Vincent’s father, was the first to begin bottling wines at the domaine in 1971. Vincent officially joined the family business in 1991 after finishing his studies, and as of 1996 he has been at the helm of the estate.

Georges set the standard for the quality of the wines coming from this tiny estate and Vincent really hasn’t changed much since he took the reins. The vineyards have been farmed organically since 1971, after Georges read a report from by Jacques Cousteau noting that he and his team had found residual pesticides in the ice of the Arctic, an area with essentially no crops to have been treated with said pesticides. The domaine was one of the first to make the conversion to organics, and for many years was one of only a handful of producers to farm in this manner.
