The Laherte brothers, Thierry and Christian, are sixth generation winemakers in the Valle de la Marne of Champagne. Aurelien Laherte represents the seventh generation and has been taking the winery to a new dimension, while still following in the footsteps of his family. They have 75 different plots across Epernay, Vallée de la Marne, and the Cotes des Blancs. The mantra with the family is to let the terroir speak for itself with a deep respect for tradition, heritage, and land. Each example of Laherte Fréres is more stunning than the last. The Laherte family, with Aurélien at the helm, have earned themselves a reputation as one of the most compelling and revolutionary producers in Champagne.
Aurélien chose to grow all seven varieties permitted in the region, while most other growers focus on the main three. He picks and presses all seven together making an intricate wine called a perpetual cuvée, better known as a solera Champagne. Les 7 contains wine not only from the current vintage, but draws bits of reserve wine from all harvests dating back to 2005, the year he took over the domaine.
