The Laherte family is special. The 10-hectare-vineyard is run by the two Laherte brothers, as well as Thierry's son, Aurlien. Since 2004, the sixth generation has been giving a new dimension to the estate. Indeed, following in his fathers footsteps, Aurlien understood that the estates true philosophy lies in taking time to do things well and being satisfied with naturally ripe and healthy grapes. Aurlien is now carefully managing this treasure passed on from one generation to the next since decades: a family know-how and living vines. Today, all the family members are working hand in hand to preserve this precious Terroir passed on by their forefathers and try to create wines that are just like them - pure, sincere and authentic.Throughout the year, they work in the most traditional and natural way possible. With help from a small team consisting of about ten employees during spring and summer time, they do their best to let each vine stock grow and express itself. They give priority to winegrowing techniques based on natural and dynamic practices by: plant infusions to improve natural defence systems, - high foliage so that the photosynthesis ensures a nice maturity, - planning the pruning work and treatments on favourable days in order to strengthen our vine stocks. It is absolutely essential to manage the soil with great care in order to preserve its balance and make it loose and able to be home to a natural and diversified wildlife. 60% Pinot Meunier, 30 Chardonnay and 10% Pinot Noir, 40% of which are reserve wines of past years kept in barrels. Alcoholic fermentation in foudres (20%), tanks(20%) and barrels(60%) with regular stirring of the lees. Partial Malolactic fermentation. Fresh aroma of green apples and pear. Rich lingering flavor. It shows surprising delicacy for a 60% meunier wine, with a crisp, tight palate and lightly textured finish. A little toastiness is adding complexity. Rich in the mouth without being weighty.
