Champagne Extra Brut Les 7, Laherte Frères

LAHE005
The idea here was not only combining many indigenous varieties, but also many different vintages – a unique champagne made from a solera system (or perpetual reserve) started in 2005 of seven older Burgundy barrels from which reserve wines are pulled off annually, they are bottled with wines of the year and represent 40% of the blend.

Tasting Notes

The current bottling is based on the 2015 vintage (60%), it is a complex and harmonious champagne, with a mix of chalky stone and truffle on the nose, subtle, stretched and restrained with savoury, earthy notes on the finish – a unique glimpse in Champagne's past and future.
