This is 2016 base with a significant 50% of reserve wines from the two previous vintages.
It was disgorged in April 2019. (Base 16. Disg. Apr 2019)
This super-mineral Champagne is 100% Chardonnay from the family's chalkiest soils in Chavot and Épernay--both sites are biodynamically farmed.
These vineyards are not only rich in chalk and chalky clay (marl) but there is also flint and schist.
It's the 'chalkiness' however that drives the wine's striking, racy, intensely saline minerality (energy, freshness) and zingy, citric lines, while the clay content gives balancing fruit weight and texture.
It has also been aged for just over two years in bottle following a first fermentation in barrique, foudre and tronconique cask. Like all Laherte's Champagne, this was disgorged by hand.
A stunning value for those who love purity and minerality in their Blanc de Blancs.
The note below refers to the 2015 base.
"The NV (2015) Brut Nature Blanc de Blancs is once again one of the stars in the range, not to mention an absolutely insane value in the world of fine wine. Bright, sculpted and classy to the core, the 2015 dazzles from the very first taste. Citrus, mineral and floral notes abound in this super-expressive, finely-cut Blanc de Blancs. Crystalline and energetic, the Blanc de Blancs has so much to offer. The 2015 is a more than worthy follow up to the stellar 2013. Non-dosé." 94 points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous
