“The Extra Brut Blanc de Blanc Les Grandes Crayeres 1er Cru is a savory, intensely mineral and driven wine. Chalk, mint, white flowers and dried herbs all grace this linear, taut Champagne. The Crayeres is understated and classy from start to finish. It’s clasic Laherte all the way.”  -Antonio Galloni

2-4 gm dosage 100% Chardonnay from Chavot midslope, western exposure, delicate and structured

This wine put in advance 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, we decided to
vinify separatly and create a new single vineyard cuvee to present
these Chardonnay with finesse and relief.

Description

“There’s a lot to explore in these new releases from Laherte. Most of the wines are a bit softer than usual, which is probably a reflection of the warmer base vintages in many of the bottlings. What I admire most about these Champagnes is their purity and singularity of expression. Varietal and site character are always front and center. Organic/biodynamic farming and a minimalist approach in the cellar inform these wonderfully distinctive Champagnes. It’s next to impossible to choose favorites in this range.” From the Importer
