Nathalie controleert elk aspect van haar wijn en zij was de eerste vrouw die de tittel Vigneron en Oenoloog had. Ze is tot op de dag van vandaag een van de weinige vrouwen in de Champagne die beide banen gelijktijdig uitvoert. En zij doet het met innervatie en met duizelingwekkende resultaten.

Haar wijngaarden liggen in het hart van de levendige regio Côte des Bar, waar verschillende aarde (Kimmeridiaanse mergel bedekt met Portland-kalksteen) en het klimaat (hogere tempraturen vanwege vochtige Atlantische invloeden / continentale invloeden) de Pinot doen rijpen waardoor haar wijnen voller van karakter worden.

Pinot Noir en op hout gerijpte Pinot Meunier uit 1 enkele wijngaard en van 1 oogstjaar geeft een bijzonder krachtige, volle en romige “maaltijd” Champagne.

Deze Champagne is zeer exclusief en genummerd, slechts 2 op voorraad.

Vinous (Antonio Galloni): “Falmet's Le Val Cornet is stellar. Honey, mint, spice, apricot and pear notes are all laced together in an ample, super-expressive Champagne built on texture. Powerful and resonant to the core, the 2009 impresses for its breadth, persistence and exceptional polish. This is the finest wine I have tasted from Nathalie Falmet. The Val Cornet is a blend of equal parts Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier from vineyards from the Rouvres-les Vignes lieu-dit." 94/100

The Wine Advocate (David Schildknecht): “Half-each Meunier and Pinot; all-2010; and matured in older casks, Falmet’s single-vineyard NV Brut Le Val Cornet Disg.5/2012 is nothing short of revelatory in its polish, transparency and complexity! (Bear in mind that, like me, you will almost certainly never have tasted a wine from within 20 or 25 miles of this one, as we’re talking about an almost entirely overlooked sector of a Champagne region, the Bar, that has only since the turn of the millennium begun to attract attention for estate-bottling.) A greenhouse-like profusion of leafing and flowering things on the nose is joined by scents of apple and red raspberry subtly shadowed by their high-toned distilled counterparts. Almost weightlessly buoyant, seductively silken and infectiusly juicy in its apple and raspberry manifestations, this amazing libation simultaneously suggests hazelnut cream, almond paste and walnut oil, resulting in an uncanny counterpoint with its lively fruit acids. Crunch of berry seeds and legume sprouts lend invigoration to a chalk suffused finish in which salinity and savor of oyster liquor spell “Umami” and “Kimmeridgian” in caps, and it takes real effort to disengage the salivary glands, much less resist the next sip. I’m only guessing when I suggest that this will be worth following for at least several more years. But don’t miss out on some now! (As soon as I had finished my sample, I went on-line and bought some of this amazing value in Champagne, in part just to re-taste and make sure it was really this good.)" 94/100
