A dry champagne with complexity of character. More info

The champagne house Laherte Frères, founded in 1889, spans 11 hectares. A philosophy of natural practises is applied throughout the vineyard. The vines are 30 years old on average. This cuvée is a blend of Pinot Meunier (60%), Chardonnay (30%) and Pinot Noir (10%). It contains 40% reserve wines from previous vintages that are preserved in casks. The grapes are picked at optimal maturity and undergo a traditional pressing. In terms of vinification, alcoholic fermentation is carried out partly in vats and partly in foudre containers. Malolactic fermentation is partly completed before a 6-month maturation on fine lees. Only a small dosage is added, making this an extra-brut champagne. On the nose, we get toasted and citrus notes, whilst the palate is mineral and complex. Serve this champagne cool (9°C), and why not pair it with a fruit sorbet or a lemon tart?

Extra-Brut Ultradition Laherte Frères serve at a temperature of 9°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Grosses crevettes roses, Plateau de fruits de mer, Bar à la sauce vierge.

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.
