Laherte Les 7 Champagne

Laherte Les 7 Champagne

$149.99

Quick: Name the grapes used to make Champagne!

You probably can get at least two. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. You might even get a third: Pinot Meunier. Good work! Now name the other four.

Wait. What?!?

The Les 7 blend is unusual in two respects. First, it’s a solera dating to the first harvest of these young vines in 2005. Secondly, the vines in question represent a field-blend consisting of all SEVEN grapes allowed in the making Champagne. This Champagne is named Les 7 for that reason.

The grapes used are as follows: 18% Chardonnay, 18% Meunier, 17% Pinot Blanc, 15% Petit Meslier, 14% Pinot Noir, 10% Fromenteau (a.k.a. Pinot Gris), and 8% Arbanne.

Jancis Robinson Tasting Note

18.5 / 20 - "Impressively complete nose. Real depth and complexity. Very much a wine that demands attention. It just happens to have bubbles. Bravo!"

Robertparker.com Tasting Note

93 points - William Kelley - "Disgorged in February 2018 without dosage, the NV Extra-Brut Les 7 is based on the 2015 vintage, supplemented by 40% reserve wines from a solera established in 2005. The wine is showing superbly today, unwinding in the glass with aromas of citrus rind, Anjou pear, paraffin wax, pastry cream, peach and white flowers. Medium to full-bodied, racy and incisive, with an elegantly fleshy core of fruit that's complemented by a pillowy mousse, it's bright and precise while avoiding any austerity. The blend consists of 10% Fromenteau, 8% Arbanne, 14% Pinot Noir, 18% Chardonnay, 17% Pinot Blanc, 18% Pinot Meunier and 15% Petit Meslier, planted in 2003 as a field blend."

94 points - Antonio Galloni - "It is one of the most intriguing wines in the range. Citrus, orchard fruit and floral notes abound as this crystalline, taut Champagne reveals its stunning beauty."

 

 

Champagne Laherte was founded by Jean-Baptiste Laherte, who set up the family estate in 1889, planting most of the vines in the village of Chavot. The estate today comprises 11 hectares in three distinct areas of the champagne region: Coteaux Sud d’Epernay, Côte des Blancs and Vallée de la Marne.

Since 2005, Aurélien Laherte, the seventh generation, is giving a new dimension to the estate, while following in the footsteps of his father Thierry and his uncle Christian, the Laherte brothers. Laherte Freres provides a range of authentic, pure and unique champagne wines.  While relying on the traditional trio of grapes Laherte Freres also has an old plot containing lost grape varietals that were once used centuries ago in champagne. Very unique with few other producers using all seven varietals. 

Kensington Wine Market is privileged to be one of Champagne Laherte Frères' exclusive retail partners since 2013.
