Grower family Laherte offers two distinct vintage Blanc de Noirs released in a limited small edition : Les Vignes d'Autrefois from Pinot Meunier and Les Longues Voyes from Pinot Noir.

Les Longues Voyes is a vintage Pinot Noir Champagne sourced from a single hectare of biodynamic vines in Chamery, 1er Cru location, in the Montagne de Reims. The old vines are rooted in clay and silts over a limestone base. It's made from a single four-tonne press of grapes which was naturally fermented and matured in old Clos des Epeneaux and Leroux oak barrels. With an 18 months long ageing in barrels and another 18-20 months on the lees in the bottle, richness and complexity is added. The dosage is always kept low (extra brut). The nose reveals notes of black fruits, and the palate is lively, tense, fine, tasty and tonic. The wine is of great purity with a very persistent saline finish.

94 points, Antonio Galloni (Vinous): “The 2017 Extra Brut Blanc de Noirs Les Longues Voyes 1er Cru, 100% Pinot Noir, is the most impressive and complete of the three lieu-dit selections from Laherte this year. Silky and aromatic, with lovely mid-weight presence, the Longues Voyes is all class. Sweet red cherry, red plum, dried flowers and chamomile all grace this exquisite, beautifully polished Blanc de Noirs. The 2017 is a real success, especially for the vintage.”
