Base Year 2010. It had been two years since I last tasted a bottle of the 2010 base year cuvée of the George Laval “Cumières” Brut Nature and the wine has really started to blossom over the course of that time. Most of the time, this cuvée is a blend of fifty percent chardonnay and twenty-five percent each of pinot noir and pinot meunier, and this is indeed the case with the 2010 version. The nose is still quite vibrant, but is starting to open up nicely, offering up a deep and pure constellation of apple, peach, a superb base of soil, almonds, fresh-baked bread and a gently floral topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, crisp and starting to really open up, with a rock solid core, fine soil signature, elegant mousse and a long, focused, complex and very classy finish. This is just a dynamite wine that is developing beautifully. I would be inclined to still let it sit in the cellar a few more years, so that it can completely blossom. 93+.
