From organically grown 30-60 year old vines in the villages of Vertus and Voipreux in the Côte des Blancs. The vineyards are located in the lower mid-slopes where the chalk is at its most prominent, capped off with a few cm of clay.
No added sulfur was used during the vinification or aging of this wine and no sugar was added during the vinification or at disgorgement. It is 100% free-run Chardonnay juice. Barrel Aged and barrel fermented, and indigenous yeast fermented.
Laherte’s goal is to express the clearest and finest grain of chalk, and the results here are clear and concise. Rich in the middle, but supported by a mineral backbone, this wine is sublime young, due to its richness and complexity, but will develop more layers over time.
