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 94
"The 2015 Extra Brut Blanc de Noirs Les Longues Voyes 1er Cru is powerful, rich and resonant, with tons of Pinot Noir character that comes to life with time in the glass. This is an especially bright, focused expression of Pinot, with a bevy of floral and mineral notes that lend tremendous vibrancy. The 2015 spent 18 months in barrel (long for Champagne) was bottled with 4 grams of dosage. It is yet another incredibly distinctive wine in this stellar range from Laherte." -Vinous

Robert Parker

RP 92
"Disgorged in February 2019 with four gams per liter dosage, the NV Extra-Brut Blanc de Noirs Premier Cru Les Longues Voyes derives from the 2015 vintage and saw 19 months élevage in barrel before tirage. Unfurling in the glass with inviting aromas of citrus zest, fresh apricot, verbena and wet stones, it’s medium to full-bodied, concentrated and incisive, with racy acids, good depth at the core and a long, mineral finish." -William Kelley
