Laherte Freres Champagnes

Laherte Freres Champagnes

Notes from the importer:

  • Thanks in large part to the extraordinary work of Aurélien Laherte and his family since 1889, heads are turning toward the village of Chavot in the Côteaux Sud d'Epernay, a sub-region sandwiched between the Côtes des Blancs and the Vallée de la Marne
  • As a meticulous vinifier and a devoted practitioner of organic and biodynamic viticulture, Aurélien strives to produce a lineup of blended and single-vineyard Champagnes that deeply expresses the identities of his unique terroirs.
  • The vibrant, energetic and racy profile of the Laherte Frères Champagnes has earned them a reputations as one of the most progressive and dynamic grower-producers in the region.
