David Levasseur is a passionate nonconformist. His micro-grower Champagne house, set up by his grandfather in the 1940s and assuming its name from his father Albert, produces around 35,000 bottles per year from organic grapes. Here in the heart of the Montagne de Reims national park, David has embarked on a sensory journey to unpick the intricate terroir of his little corner of Champagne, while giving a leading role to Pinot Meunier, too often the supporting act.
