"Les Grandes Crayères 2014 : Here in its first release, the 2014 Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Les Grandes Crayères 1er Cru is another fabulous wine from Aurelien Laherte. Powerful in the glass, the 2014 possesses striking textural depth and resonance. This is an especially potent, structured expression of Chardonnay. I loved it."
96 Points, ANtonio Galloni, Vinous

100% Chardonnay from massale selection of old and new rootstock from the particular and complex Terroir of Les Coteaux Sud d’ Epernay. A few plots have soft soils and the Campanian Chalk is present at 20 cm. In 2014, the decision was made to vinify these seperately and create a new single vineyard cuvee to present this Chardonnay with finesse and relief. Dosage 4g/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.
