Thanks in large part to the extraordinary work of Aurélien Laherte and his family since 1889, heads are turning toward the village of Chavot in the Côteaux Sud d'Epernay, a sub-region sandwiched between the Côtes des Blancs and the Vallée de la Marne. As a meticulous vinifier and a devoted practitioner of organic and biodynamic viticulture, Aurélien strives to produce a lineup of blended and single-vineyard Champagnes that deeply expresses the identities of his unique terroirs. The inaugural release of Les Grands Crayeres is a powerful, deep and structured Chardonnay with impressive poise and a long life ahead. An impressive new parcellaire cuvee from Aurelien Laherte!
"The 2015 Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Les Grandes Crayères 1er Cru is fabulous and also one of the clear highlights in this stunning range of Champagnes from Aurelien Laherte. Rich, dense and explosive, with tremendous textural resonance, Les Grandes Crayères hits all the right notes. In the glass, the 2015 is intensely mineral and yet it also possesses stunning depth. Bright citrus and floral notes add striking layers of nuance. Readers will find a remarkably pure, crystalline Blanc de Blancs that captures a dazzling expression of Chardonnay. Don't miss it. Dosage: 4 gr/L. Disgorged: February 2019."-Vinous 96 points!
