Aurélien Laherte’s 100% Pinot Noir Blanc de Noirs Les Longues Voyes translates as ‘the long way’, referring not only to the 25 km that you need to travel from the Laherte Estate to arrive at the vineyard, but also the wine’s extended aging: 18 months in barrel and a further 18-20 months in bottle. 


The fruit is sourced from a single hectare of biodynamic vines in Chamery, Montagne de Reims, owned by a good friend of Aurélien Laherte’s. The 35-year-old vines are rooted in clay and silts over a limestone base. The wine was made from a single four-tonne press of grapes, which was naturally fermented and matured in old Clos des Epeneaux and Leroux barrels. There was no malo and the dosage was four grams per litre. 


So, now the estate has two vintage Blanc de Noirs released at the same time: Les Vignes d'Autrefois from Meunier and Les Longues Voyes from Pinot Noir.

Reviews

“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, especially for the vintage. Dosage is 4 grams per liter.”
