The champagne house Laherte Frères, founded in 1889, spans 11 hectares. A philosophy of natural practises is applied throughout the vineyard. This premier cru is produced from old Pinot Noir vines found on Reims' little mountain where the soil is rich in clay and limestone, and the sub-soil is chalky. The harvests are carried out once the grapes have reached optimal maturity, and a traditional pressing follows. Fermentation is in barriques, and élevage on fine lees lasts for at least 18 months. There is no malolactic fermentation. The dosage is 3.5g/l. On the nose, there are floral notes and hints of pear. On the palate, this champagne is characterised by its beautiful vinosity and great indulgence. It should be served at around 9°C and paired with a dish like a terrine de Saint-Jacques or roasted langoustine.

Extra Brut Premier Cru Les Longues Voyes Laherte Frères serve at a temperature of 9°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Terrine de Saint-Jacques, Langoustines rôties, Croustillants de rougets.

    Information about domain Laherte Frères

    This illustrious champagne house, founded in 1889, is now under the care of its fifth and sixth generations. Thierry and his son Aurélien manage the property masterfully, with vineyards extending across over 11 hectares on the Côte de Blanc, the slopes of Sud d'Epernay and the Marne valley. A certain philosophy is applied to the vineyard work with a preference for natural practises. Laherte Frères is one of those rare houses still growing some of the Champagne region's forgotten grape varieties, namely Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Petit Meslier and Arbanne which all go into Les 7 along with the three classic varieties. The vineyards are propagated using massal selection and the majority of champagnes are vinified in wood. The élevage is particularly well executed and precise without going over the top. Malolactic fermentation is often avoided. This vineyard produces excellent, flavoursome de terroir champagnes with a strong personality. They are particularly popular with connoisseurs and critics.
