Laherte Freres Les Grandes Crayères 2016


A stunning wine, the 2016 Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Les Grandes Crayères 1er Cru is also the most impressive wine in this range. Bright and finely sculpted, the 2016 possess dazzling energy to match its mid-weight personality. I very much admire the wine’s drive and precision. The Grandes Crayères emerges from two parcels in Chavot that confer so much tension. It is a stunning Champagne in every way. 96 points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous


Disgorged January 2018. This wine offers what Laherte refers to as the “quintessence of the Chavot terroir.” It is always a selection of Laherte’s five best barrels from each of his two finest Chavot terroirs–old-vine Chardonnay from a site in Les Chemins d’Epernay planted in 1957, on clay with chalky subsoils, (around a third of the Chardonnay is actually the rare Chardonnay-Muscaté), and Pinot Noir from Les Rouges Maisons, planted in the late ’80s on a deep soil rich in clay, flint and schist.

Both wines are vinified separately and entirely raised in old Burgundian barrels (including portions fermented in second-hand DRC Le Montrachet barrels). The dosage here is 4 g/L. This is easily the finest example of this wine we have shipped, clearly articulating the skyrocketing progression of this Estate. There is genuine depth and texture from the old vines and the clay of Les Chemins d’Epernay but this opulence is vibrantly balanced by crystalline freshness. A long, classy finish. A superb and unique Champagne that clearly speaks of its terroir.
