The Laherte Blanc de Blancs Brut Nature is one of the purest expression of the Chardonnay grapes coming from the Coteaux Sud d’Epernay and one of the estate's most emblematic cuvées.
Terroir: Laherte Frères Blanc de Blancs Brut Nature is made from their best parcels of Chardonnay located on the south slopes of Épernay and Chavot. The vines are over 30 years old, and the vineyards are comprised mostly of limestone with some fine silts and chalk in the surface. 50% of this wine is comprised of reserve wines of past years kept in barrels.
Winemaking Notes: Grapes are picked by hand and traditionally pressed. Fermentation takes place is foudres and barrels with regular stirring of the lees. Some of the wine goes through malolactic fermentation. Wine is aged for 6 months followed by light filtration before bottling in the spring. Bottles are disgorged by hand. No dosage is added.
