Single Varietal Bottlings from Laherte Freres

We can't get enough bottles from Laherte to satisfy demand, but do our best to grab as much as possible.  Today we have the full lineup of single varietal bottlings of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier, albeit from different vintages.  First we have the 2017 D'Autrefois and 2017 Longues Voyes in stock, but only a case of each, both with awesome writeups from Vinous below.  Then we JUST confirmed some of the 2018 Les Grandes Crayeres, which is PRE-ARRIVAL and has not yet been rated, but every previous release was somewhere between VM 94-96.


**PLEASE NOTE, the 2018 Les Grandes Crayeres is coming later, so if you'd like your 2017s before these arrive, please place separate orders**


"Once again I was deeply impressed with Aurelien Laherte's Champagnes.  The range continues to grow, and yet each wine has a sense of purpose.  Some are explorations of a single grape, others exalt the qualities of small parcels and then there are wines that showcase the principles of blending.  All of these Champagnes share a feeling of vinous richness that is enhanced by aging in mostly neutral oak and low dosage....it's pretty hard to go wrong with any of these Champagnes." - Vinous, Nov 2021


2017 Laherte Freres Champagne Vignes D'Autrefois Pinot Meunier Extra Brut - VM93
"The 2017 Extra Brut Vignes d'Autrefois, 100% Meunier from vines planted between 1947 and 1964, offers plenty of depth, texture, and resonance.  Orchard fruit, spice, ginger, dried fruit and plum meld together in a Champagne of real gravitas.  There is certainly plenty to look foward to.  The 2017 is perhaps just a touch slender, but in exchange it will drink well pretty much upon release."


2017 Laherte Freres Champagne Premier Cru Les Longues Voyes Blanc de Noirs Extra Brut - VM94
"The 2017 Extra Brut Blanc de Noirs Les Longues Voyes 1er Cru, 100% Pinot Noir, is the most impressive and complete of the three lieu-dit selections from Laherte this year.  Silky and aromatic, with lovely mid-weight presence, the Longues Voyes is all class.  Sweet red cherry, red plum, dried flowers and chamomile all grace this exquisite, beautifully polished Blanc de Noirs.  The 2017 is a real success."
