Aurelian from Frenchie pulled special for me. April 2026. Wonderful. Tannins. Balance. Near perfect. — 5 years ago
At first I didn't realise this had no dosage. Perfectly balanced non-dosé - perhaps the partial malo helped toned down the acidity, or maybe some rs in the base/ex-tirage wine. Chalky undertones (perfect expression of terrior imo), nice autolytic characters (2 years in bottle), apple, grapefruit, lemon, honey, and a touch of stinky funk. Really quite a delicious bdb.
Note: Laherte Frères. Grower champagne from Coteaux Sud d'Épernay (slopes to the south of Épernay). Young winemaker, Aurelian Laherte, joining family estate. Biodynamically farmed, wild yeast ferments, 80% of cuvees fermented in old oak (ex-Ben Leroux and Liger-Belair). Focus on terrior. — 4 years ago
