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 Grandes Crayeres" means the ‘big chalk,’ which this single vineyard of course is “chalk full.” In 2014, the Laherte brothers decided to vinify these vines separately, showcasing the finesse of the Chardonnay, the effect of this soft chalk, and the excellence of the vintage.
