Laherte Freres Les 7 Extra Brut
Intensely perfumed and bright, Les 7 showcases striking interplay of aromas, flavors and textures. Citrus, white orchard fruit and sweet, perfumed overtones all develop in the glass.
18% Pinot Meunier, 18% Chardonnay; 17% Pinot Blanc, 15% Petit Meslier; 14% Pinot Noir, 10% Fromenteau 8% Arbanne; This is a singular wine in the region as it is both a combination of all seven grape varieties AND 40% of the blend is from a continous solera started in 2005. There is an art to finding an acid and sugar balance across all seven grape varieties when determining picking dates, which is a challenge tht Aurelien embraces and appreciates. The resulting wine is dense, rich, racy and endlessy pleasing.
