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.
A dry red still wine—yes, it does come from the region of Champagne, but bottled as "Coteaux Champenois." Pinot Meunier is the star here, fresh, red-fruited, and chalky. In a region where global warming is constantly looming, ripe vintages are happening more frequently, resulting in more still reds.
