The NV Extra Brut Ultradition is a gorgeous wine at its level, and also a terrific introduction to the Laherte Champagnes." 93 points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous
This exciting family estate is located in the South of Champagne in the small village of Chavot - a village that rarely receives fan-fare. The 10 hectares of land farmed by the Laherte family are biodynamic and organic with the exception of two parcels which are located further afield in the Cote de Blancs and the Valley De La Marne.
This release is a 2016 base disgorged in July 2018 and is made from organic / biodynamic fruit. In terms of the varietal mix, the blend remains 60% Pinot Meunier, 30% Chardonnay and 10% Pinot Noir.
"Bright, appley and fragrant, this feels fresh and easy to drink, buttressed by taut, lively acidity. As usual, it's made from a majority of meunier (60 percent), blended with 30 percent chardonnay and ten percent pinot noir. It finishes with brightly citrusy fragrance, its tangerine-like flavors showing energy and vigor." Peter Liem, champagneguide.net
"The NV Extra Brut Ultradition is a gorgeous wine at its level, and also a terrific introduction to the Laherte Champagnes. Translucent and energetic, the Ultradition has a lot to offer. Pear, almond and dried flowers meld together as this creamy, ample Champagne shows off its distinctive personality. The flavors are brilliant and chiseled throughout. What a gorgeous wine this is. The Ultradition is based on Meunier (unusual for a NV Champagne), with 30% Chardonnay and 10% Pinot Noir." 93 points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous
