Les Vignes d’Autrefois 2014 : The 2014 Extra Brut Vignes d’Autrefois, 100% Meunier, is powerful and radiant on the palate, with tremendous depth and exceptional overall balance. Mirabelle, kirsch, dried herbs, dried pear and spice notes are front and center. Ethereal, light on its feet and also quite exotic, the 2014 is superb. I would prefer to drink it over the next handful of years. This is a compelling expression of Meunier.
94 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous

Selected plots planted between 1947 and 1953 including some ungrafted vines. A small portion of interplanted Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Fromonteau (Pinot Gris) is included.

Acoholic fermentation in barrel.Dosage 2 to 4 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.
