Laherte Frères, Champagne Brut Rosé "Ultradition"
The Laherte family farms organically, working with parcels in Coteaux Sud d’Epernay, Vallée de la Marne and the Côte des Blancs. This wine is 100% Pinot Meunier, with the variety’s pretty strawberry-pink notes and crunchy herbal tones. The bubbles and those herbal tones combine in a fresh flavor, driving the red fruit long into the finish. This is tight, clean and very dry.
The aromatics here are stunning, soaring from the glass in a complex blend of cherries, rhubarb, a touch of tangerine, wheat bread, complex, chalky soil tones and a gently smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, crisp and beautifully balanced, with a fine core, excellent focus and grip, frothy mousse and lovely grip on the long, complex and classy finish.
