" Les Empreintes 2012: The 2012 Extra Brut Les Empreintes is yet another compelling wine in this range Aurélien Laherte. Radiant and super-expressive on the palate, with tremendous richness, the Empreintes dazzles from start to finish. Bright saline notes add tension to the sculpted finish in a Champagne that delivers the goods big time. Les Empreintes is a blend of 50% Pinot Noir from Les Chemins d'Epernay planted in 1957 and 50% Chardonnay from Les Rouges Maisons, both in Chavot, planted in 1957 and 1983 respectively. In a word: superb."
95 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous

Chardonnay is 1/3 Chardonnay Muscate. Dosage 3 g/l

Laherte Frères was founded in the nineteenth century with current winemaker Aurélien representing the 7th Generation They own nine hectares of land spread over ten communes and an astonishing seventy different parcels. Vineyards are currently farmed biodynamically or in the process of conversion. The family holdings are mainly located around Épernay, nearby Chavot (where the winery is located), Moussy and Vaudancourt. In addition, they own parcels in the Côte des Blancs and the Marne Valley. They cultivate all three main varieties with Pinot Meunier very well represented as one would expect given the local terroir. Primary ferments are mostly in wood – small barrels and foudres - with only partial malolactic & 6 months lees aging before secondary ferment. Dosage is kept low and each wine is carefully crafted to see the varieties used best exploit the estate’s patchwork of fine terroir.
