ABOUT THIS WINE
Today, we are making our « Rosé d’ Assemblage » with the maturity from our old vines of Meunier only. With the different vinification, we are able to get a perfect blend between fruit, complexity, structure and freshness. Our cultural practices allow for the vines to grow with the respect of nature. Influenced by ecological methods. The grapes are harvested from Pinot Meunier vines around 30 years old. Assemblage takes place with 100% Pinot Meunier using 30% Maceration, 10% red wine and 60 % white wine. ( 40% of reserve wines aged in barrels). Grapes are picked by hand when fully ripe. Alcoholic fermentation takes place in vats, foudres and barrels. It partially undergoes malolactic fermentation. The wine is aged on fine lees.
ABOUT THIS PRODUCER
Since 2005, Aurélien Laherte - the seventh generation - has been giving a new dimension to the estate, while following in the footsteps of his father Thierry and his uncle Christian, the Laherte brothers. Passionately, they promote the family’s values and continue to bring the best out of the terroir.
Throughout the year, we are fully dedicated to our vines and follow carefully their development. We are constantly on the watch to better appreciate their natural beauty, by observing, feeling, tasting, listening, touching. We have created a range of authentic, pure and unique Champagne wines – authentic like our land, pure like our terroir and unique like our work. At Laherte Frères, the expression “terroir wine” takes on full significance.
Today, 80% of the estate’s wines are fermented and matured in wooden receptacles (we own about 350 oak barrels, as well as 6 casks and 1 truncated-cone tank). This enables us to preserve and highlight the features of each locality and to let grow our wines, coming from 75 plots. We think that the best way to make the most of our terroir is to reveal its intimate personality through our wines. Massal selection, plot by plot vinification, immediate and delicate pressing, and minimal dosage are key elements of our wine-growing strategy. Because we are passionate about what we do, we follow a largely hands-off approach to allow the terroir to display its whole character. From the deep roots of the land to the cellar, we are continually striving to highlight the true nature of our vines. This conscious and sensitive approach, that has always been close to our hearts, shapes each and every Laherte Frères cuvée.
