Description

Laherte Fereres rise to the top of the grower Champagne movement has been meteoric.

The young Aurèlien Laherte is recognised as one of the brightest young minds in the region. Since taking control of his family's vines on the slopes to the south of Epernay, Aurèlien has received wide acclaim for his exquisite, laser-focused cuveés and is considered one of the most exciting producers in the region.

He has adopted organic vineyard practices and a traditional approach to winemaking, opting for large format barrels for ageing and using a classic wooden press - making wines in a style reminiscent of the grower Champagnes of the 1950s.

This is a blend of Pinot Meunier made in three ways. Sixty percent of the fruit is pressed off immediately making a base white wine, thirty percent is saignée Rosé, and ten percent is made as a full-blown red. It's aged in barrels in a variety of sizes, culminating in a delicious, complex sparkling Rosé that is outstanding value for money.

Today, we are making our « Rosé d' Assemblage » with the maturity from our old vines of Meunier only. With the different vinification, we are able to get a perfect blend between Fruit, Complexity, Structure and Freshness…

Culturals pratices : vines growing with the respect of nature. Influenced by ecoligical methods. Vines around 30 years old.

Assemblage :
• 100% Pinot Meunier :
o 30% Maceration
o 10% Red Wine
o 60 % White Wine. ( 40% of reserve wines aged
in barrels )

Vinification :
• Picked up by hand when fully ripen, traditional press.
• Alcoholic fermentation in vats, foudres and barrels.
• Malolactic fermentation partyaly made.
• Ageing on lees during 6 months.

Dosage : disgorgment by hand. 2,5 Gr/l

94 Points - "Tense and crystalline in the glass, this is another wine in this range that is bursting at the seams with personality. The low dosage of 2.5 grams per liter lends a perceptible feeling of austerity. At times, a slightly vegetal (but not unpleasant) element comes through. I would prefer to drink this over the next few years. There will be plenty to admire over that time." - Antonio Galloni

Ordering

We want Different Drop customers to always be getting the best price. If you see a lower price elsewhere, just get in touch and we will sort it out for you. We handle all our price-matching on a case by case basis.

Some things to keep in mind: 

  • Retrospective price-matching is available for 30 days after you have purchased from us.
  • The price match cannot be used in conjunction with a coupon or one-off deal we are offering. The idea is for you to get the best price in the market so if that is already achieved through a coupon then we won't price match on top of that.
  • We don't price match clearance or fire sales.
  • We’ll match the listed price as long as it is a legitimate offer and the competing store is actually able to fulfil the order (they have stock or more stock is en route). Essentially we won't price match cheeky vendors listing wines they have no hope of actually getting for you...
  • It must be a publicly listed price. We won't match a price that has been achieved through a coupon/cash-back arrangement, or through a non-advertised offer over the phone or otherwise.  
  • It is limited to a reasonable retail quantity.

We'll treat each price match request on its merit and reserve the right to refuse where we deem fit. For example, particularly rare wines, from non-trust-worthy vendors, in circumstances we deem illegitimate or if we feel our policy is being unfairly taken advantage of.

At the end of the day, we'll look after you and use common sense to ensure you're getting the best price, please just don't take the p%$$!

No, feel free to mix it up! There is no minimum requirement. You can order wines in any quantity or combination, 1 or 50+ bottles.

We stock three different sized gift boxes (single, three bottle and six), all are available for purchase for a flat rate of $8. They look great and make an awesome impression.

To add a gift box to your order, simply add at checkout. The special requests box is your friend, please give us as many details of what you are looking for and we will try our best, or get in contact to discuss it with you. 

If you want to bulk order gifts or if you have any trouble please email hello@differentdrop.com or call and we can try and help.

 

If you can't add more wine to your cart it means we are low on stock of that wine. For example, if you are only able to 3 bottles and no more that means we only have 3 bottles left of that wine. If it's a must have, please contact us and we may be able to order more in for you.
