This Rosé de Saignée is produced with the Pinot Meunier which comes from plots situated in “Les Beaudiers” in Chavot. 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
