This Blanc de Blancs is made with Lahert’s best parcels on the south slopes of Epernay. This is a perfect representation of the purity and energy coming from this area and the complexity of old Chardonnay vines.

Assemblage : 100% Chardonnay. 50% of reserve wines from previous vintages aged in barrels on lees. Vinification : Picked up by hand when fully ripen, traditional press.

Tasting notes (Antonio Galloni): A Champagne of extraordinary finesse, the NV Brut Nature Blanc de Blancs is positively stunning. Smoke, slate, crushed rocks, lemon peel and white flowers are beautifully sculpted. Crystalline and taut, yet with remarkable resonance, the Blanc de Blancs is totally alluring from the very first taste. 95 / 100
