Lavalle was a professor at the capital's medical school Dijon in the Burgundy, Member of the city council, director of the botanical garden in the city and member of the "Société géologique de France". After all, at the end of his life he was chairman of the commission in the fight against the phylloxera,

Lavalle published in 1855 the work "Histoire et Statistique de la Vigne de Grands Vins de la Côte-d'Or", which was largely based on the work "Statistique de La Vigne Dans Le Departement de La Cote-D 'Or' built. Lavalle describes the history of the vineyards in Burgundy. In 1861, he completed the first systematic classification of vineyards and locations. This was the basis for today's four-stage Burgundy classification,
