The Laherte Blanc de Blancs Brut Nature is one of the purest Chardonnay expressions coming from the Côteaux Sud d’Épernay and one of the estate's most emblematic cuvées.
Terroir Notes: Laherte Frères Blanc de Blancs Brut Nature is made from their best parcels of Chardonnay located on the south slopes of Épernay and Chavot. The vines are over 30 years old, and the vineyards are comprised mostly of limestone with some fine silts and chalk on the surface. 50% of this wine is comprised of reserve wines of past years kept in barrels.
Winemaking Notes: Grapes are picked by hand and traditionally pressed. Fermentation takes place is foudres and barrels with regular stirring of the lees. Some of the wine goes through malolactic fermentation. Wine is aged for 6 months followed by light filtration before bottling in the spring. Bottles are disgorged by hand. No dosage is added.
