Champagne Laherte Les Baudiers, Rosé de Saignée, Meunier Brut

FROM THE LES CUVÉES COEUR DE TERROIR LINE

For saignée rosés, the grapes (in this case Pinot Meunier) are harvested when they have reached the optimum maturity for red wine production. They are then pressed and filled into tanks together with the skin and seeds. After a short time of 2 to 48 hours, part of the juice is drained or bled off. Hence the name (saigner = French to bleed). This portion, which becomes the saignée rosé, now ferments alone.
This process ensures that Saignée rosés are particularly strong and intense in colour.

The Pinot Meunier used for this rosé grows in the village of "Les Beaudiers" halfway up the Côtes de Chavot. These old plots are worked very carefully and by hand. The vines are kept short to limit the yield and give the grapes more air. A terroir wine that highlights the sumptuous complexity and aromatic richness of Pinot Meunier, complemented by a fabulous limestone freshness.

  • Grape varieties: 100% Pinot Meunier, 50% of which are reserve wines stored in barriques.
  • Terroir: Terroir de Chavot. Old plots planted in 1953, 1958 and 1965. North-East orientation.
  • Soil: The top soil layer is flat and consists of clay and silt rock with pebbles, shale and flint. The subsoil consists of chalk cliffs from the Ypresian.

TASTING NOTES AND POINTS

"An impressively expressive rosé of medium pomegranate carmine red with aromas of watermelon, strawberries and rose petals. The whole thing is rounded off by a tight acidity and a fine, creamy pearl. In the finish, the notes of red fruits are present for a long time.” (Tyson Stelzer 93/100)

"Offers impressive depth, density and richness - essentially everything a saignée rosé should. A beautiful champagne in every way.” (Antonio Galloni 95/100)

“Clear nose, creamy and fresh, with notes of yeast, red fruits, citrus, hazelnut, flowers and spices. On the palate: Nice freshness of citrus fruits and juicy fruits, with an elegant perlage. Long-lasting, silky and lively, delicate, profound, elegant. Still young, but already very lively, round, cedar notes and a firm and juicy finish.” (wine plus)

Revue des vins de France: 15/20

"An extraordinary and incredibly powerful champagne that can easily accompany an entire meal. Definitely something for the advanced, as it doesn't necessarily live up to the expectations one has of a champagne. Its taste is very atypical and very particular, with a pronounced beautiful fruitiness without being sweet.” (Anaïs Causse and Jens Gärtner)

Champagne Laherte Freres. "not your typical champagne"

The Domaine was founded in 1889, more than a hundred years ago, by Jean‑Baptiste Laherte. He planted the first vineyards around the village of Chavost, today's Chavot. This is located south of Épernay, the "capital" of Champagne. Over generations, the domaine has grown to just over 11 hectares of vineyards, spread over various sub-appellations in the region.

Today, the sixth and seventh generations of the Laherte family work hand in hand to produce wines and later champagnes that are like them: pure, sincere and authentic. Experience meets youthful energy in this beautiful cross-generational collaboration - both driven by a shared passion and the goal of continuing and improving the legacy they left behind.
