Champagne Laherte Freres Ultradition Brut NV

Regular price $70.00
This pure, punchy, farmer fizz is a blend of 60% Pinot Meunier, 30% Chardonnay and 10% Pinot Noir, drawn from parcels set across the Coteaux Sud d'Épernay, Vallée de la Marne and Côte des Blancs. Aurélien Laherte ferments the wines in a mix of foudres, tanks and barrels, with regular stirring of the lees. The wine is a 50/50 split between two recent, concurrent harvests with the 50% reserve wine enhancing the wine's depth and spice-like complexity. It's a super value grower wine: vinous, textured and incisive with pure (red fruit, apple and exotic spice) flavours and lively, earthy length. It now has only 4gm dosage (i.e., it's an extra brut) and is all the better for it.

"Bright, appley and fragrant, this feels fresh and easy to drink, buttressed by taut, lively acidity. As usual, it's made from a majority of meunier (60 percent), blended with 30 percent chardonnay and ten percent pinot noir. It finishes with brightly citrusy fragrance, its tangerine-like flavors showing energy and vigor." Peter Liem, champagneguide.net
