Laherte Freres - NV Ultratradition Brut Champagne
This NV Brut lures you deep into the bottle with redcurrant, apple skin, Munier berries and a punchy, mineral close. Deliciously textured and vibrantly acidic – makes you feel alive! The blend is 60% Pinot Meunier, 30% Chardonnay and 10% Pinot Noir from 7 different parcels. The distinctive, geologically complex terroir of Chavot and the Coteaux Sud d'Epernay yields a style of wine that is creamy with fruit generosity. Biodynamic farming and minimal intervention winemaking symbiotically showcase purity and oomph. The wine is moved only by gravity, fermentation occurs spontaneously and more than 80 percent of the wine is fermented and matured in large foudres and old barriques – as all Champagne once was pre-1950s. This release was disgorged in October 2018 [base wine 2016 vintage].
