Laherte Frères, Epernay

Categories: ,

Established in 1889, Laherte Frères now boasts six generations who have run the estate. Though double in size from its original holdings, the estate is still very small by Champagne standards, with just 10.5 hectares, with vineyard holdings across Epernay (with Chavot being the home estate), the Côte des Blancs (including the 1er cru Vertus and Voipreux), and the Vallée de la Marne. Work in the vineyards is traditional and natural, following biodynamic principles and focusing on the overall health of the vines and their surrounding environment. Work in the cellar is similarly inspired, with natural fermentations, use of gravity flow, a focus on purity to express terroir, and light dosage.
