This Rosé de Saignée is produced with the Pinot Meunier which comes from plots situated in “Les Beaudiers”. Laherte uses traditional and cultural methods which include short pruning for a limited production; this is a manual and careful work with regular ploughing so as to obtain healthy grapes. Their know-how and the quality of Lahert's terroir make this wine unique.

Tasting Notes (Antonio Galloni) : The natural richness of the old vines confers unreal depth and voluptuousness. You can expect a powerful, broad Champagne. Les Beaudiers is stunning. 95 / 100
Tasting Notes (Tyson Selzer) : An impressively expressive rosé of medium pomegranate-crimson hue, layered with flavours of watermelon, strawberries and rose petals. Vibrant red fruits carry long on the finish, amid a taut acid presence and a fine, creamy bead. 93/100
