LAHERTE EXTRA BRUT LES 7 CLOS CEPAGES

The “Les 7” moniker refers to the fact this Champagne is fashioned from no less than seven grape varieties—Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, Arbanne, Petit Meslier, Pinot Blanc and Fromenteau (Pinot Gris). The grapes are all planted together in a three-acre, biodynamically farmed vineyard and are all harvested and pressed together before vinification in barrel. This is a rolling multi-vintage blend consisting of two-thirds 2008 with the balance drawn from 2005-2007. Disgorged in January of this year, the wine is still tightly coiled but we were able to discern faint aromas of citrus blossoms, green melons and mint wafting up from our flutes. This cerebral, bone-dry Champagne showcases highly charged lime and tangerine taste impressions that are firmly supported with a stony undercarriage. Its lively acidity propels a kinetic finish that just won’t quit. A true rock-licker’s delight, this Champagne works true gustatory magic when paired with oysters or scallops.
