Very Mosel in style. Nose has pristine apple with a hint of barely ripe peach. Nice slatey minerality underneath. So pure smelling. Crisp and so balanced in the mouth, with fruit and cracked stones in equipoise. Dry and clean as a whistle on the finish. Nicely done. — 2 years ago
Lemon zest, fresh cut apple, mandarin oranges, pleasant bit of creamsicle on the finish, balanced as can be. Fairly simple, but exactly what it’s supposed to be and quite good. Will be great with white beans, rice, and leeks! — a year ago
It’s good champers, what else to say? Well plenty—I like a rich bubbly. The bready notes take a back seat to fruit n cream, and there is an interesting bit of...well when I first smelled it I thought...”Ricola”? Something herbal and sure to soothe the throat. — a year ago
Beautiful wine and what a great blend! Bright acidity. Smells of white flowers and the ocean air. Just lovely. Paired with seared white fish laarb (thai salad) and it was a dynamic duo! — 2 years ago
Well, what even is there to say about a wine like this? Sometimes words really are not enough.
First, this color. Remarkably romantic and positively thrilling. Deep crimson with slightly darker undertones. Pretty perlage with sparse, tiny bubbles. The nose is warm and inviting with a plethora of red berries out of the gate. Ripe cherries and wild strawberries abound with blood orange notes accompanying. Peaches and herbs with red currant aromas.
These Laherte champagnes are always so delicious and terroir driven. This is easily one of the more lush of his wines that I’ve tasted. Extra Brut dosage and the acidity is high but you may not even notice it. It has so much power and verve to it, it’s truly outstanding. The Saignée method produces some light vinous characteristics but not nearly as much as you may imagine. Nice balance and impeccable structure, especially considering that it’s just a baby right now.
An engaging and exciting attacks with just the right amount of earth on the palate. That vivacious red fruit is immense here along with plenty of limes and a little lemon. The finish is long and spectacular and you will want more. An instant favorite of mine. And there will be more. — a year ago
