Variety: Pinot Meunier
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.
Les Vignes d'Autrefois is a special bottle of old vines planted by the Laherte forefathers between 1947 and 1953. The wine is fermented in barrel and undergoes lees ageing. This one clocks in between 2 and 4 grams of sugar per liter. This is rich minerality with opulent fruit.
