About The Wine
Sourced from biodynamically-grown Chardonnay from the slopes south of Epernay, Aurelien Laherte has crafted an intense, bell-ringer of a Champagne.
There is no-dosage but this isn't an acid bomb - it is fruit-rich, with a chalky undertone, and even a touch of fennell-y spice on the finish. Based on 2016 vintage but with a large percentage of reserve wine in the blend.
Left us High and Dry, as Radiohead and Different Drop might sing, but we croon in happiness.
About Laherte Freres
Laherte Freres (the brothers Laherte) are based in Chavot, just to the south of the famous Champagne town of Epernay. Grape growers for generations, they are now at the vanguard of the recent grower Champagne revolution, respecting the soil and the environment while making some astonishing, characterful wines.
With a rare terroir-focused philosophy, meticulous biodynamic viticulture and traditional winemaking (lots of large old wood is used) these are Champagnes to make you drink and think.
Look out for zero dosage Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier Rose and a cuvee made from six varieties!
