Laherte Freres, Champagne Brut Rose Ultradition, NV

$59.99

The Rose is a stunning value in Rose Brut, far better than what you’d find for a comparable price from the Big Houses. All Pinot Meunier, 50% from 2014 and 50% from 2013. The color comes from the addition of 10% still Meunier.

Aurélien Laherte believes Champagne should be for everyone. We agree.

Along with childhood best friend and fellow rising star, Raphaël Bérèche, they formed Terre de Vins, a down to earth trade organization. They bring together like-minded growers for a yearly tasting of vin clair (still wine, pre-bubbles) and finished Champagne to showcase their progressive wines.

Aurélien makes wines of power and whimsy, decadence and tension. Maybe it is because of his biodynamic approach, maybe it was his training with Antoine Sélosse or maybe he is simply one of the best vignerons in Champagne. No matter the reason, take advantage of this newsletter only pricing to experience it for yourself.

All of his wines are aged in neutral barrels, do not go through malolactic fermentation and have just enough dosage to balance the wine and showcase the terroir.

Seventh generation winegrower Aurélien Laherte is part of a dynamic, young generation making waves in Champagne and producing a fine array of terroir-driven Champagnes using a natural approach to viticulture and winemaking. Since taking the helm of his family’s estate in 2005, Aurelien has been a devoted practitioner of organic and biodynamic viticulture, striving to produce a lineup of blended and single-vineyard Champagnes that deeply expresses the identities of his unique terroirs. The vibrant, energetic and racy profile of Laherte Frères Champagnes has earned Aurélien a reputations as a rising star in the region.

Professional Reviews

Antonio Galloni

AG 92
"The NV Brut Rosé Ultradition is a pretty, gracious, lifted Champagne that shows the more understated side of the house style. Crushed flowers, mint, herbs and sweet red berry fruit are all nicely laced together. Medium in body and airy, the Ultradition Rosé is quite delicate and also the most delicate of the Rosés in this range. The Ultradition Rosé is 60% white pressed Meunier, 30% rosé de saignée, 10% still red Meunier, bottled with 6-8 grams of dosage. Disgorged: April, 2019." -Vinous

Wine Spectator

WS 91
"A richly spiced version, with fragrant ground anise and ginger notes accenting the well-knit and creamy flavors of crushed black cherry, peach skin, toast and graphite. Offers a lingering, well-cut finish. Disgorged November 2016. Drink now through 2021." -2018-11-01 00:00:00 -0400
