about the producer
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 now organic certification.
laurent’s range of grand cru champagnes truly typifies the individual terroir of his vineyard, village and the côte des blancs. light, fresh and subtle flavours combined with a real depth and pleasant complexity.
