This super-mineral Champagne is 100% Chardonnay from the family's chalkiest soils in Chavot and Épernay. These vineyards are biodynamically farmed, and the soil is rich in chalk and chalky clay (marl), with pockets of flint and schist. It’s the chalkiness that drives the wine’s striking, racy and intensely saline minerality—that energy, freshness and zingy, citric line—while the clay provides balancing fruit weight and texture. 


Based on perfectly ripe fruit, the Brut Nature is a blend of two vintages, and includes up to 50% reserve wines. As the name suggests, it’s bottled without dosage. Aged for just over two years in bottle following a primary fermentation in barrique, foudre and tronconique cask, like all Laherte’s Champagne this was disgorged by hand.

Reviews

(Previous bottling) “Laherte’s NV Brut Nature Blanc de Blancs is one of the great under the radar wines in Champagne. It marries precision, tension and depth. Citrus peel, crushed rocks, mint, dried flowers and white pepper race across the palate. The Blanc de Blancs is a Champagne of tremendous stature and class that blends the best attributes of sites in Epernay and the Côtes des Blancs. Best of all, it's an insane value.”
93 points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous
