Champagne Laherte Freres Rose de Meunier Extra Brut, Coteaux Sud d’Epernay and Vallee De La Marne, France

The Laherte estate was founded in 1889 by Jean-Baptiste Laherte. At this time, most of the vines were situated in a village known as Chavost. “Today, we are making our ‘Rose d’ Assemblage’ with the maturity from our old vines (30 years) of Meunier only. With the different vinification, we are able to get a perfect blend between Fruit, Complexity, Structure and Freshness. 100% Pinot Meunier. Rose de Meunier is a blend of 30% macerated Meunier, 60% white wine (immediately pressed Meunier) and 10% still red Meunier. It is simultaneously racy and rich, focused and full, with a long, dry finish. An exciting new wine especially for Meunier lovers. Grapes are picked up by hand when fully ripen. Alcoholic fermentation takes place in in vats, foudres and barrels. Malolactic fermentation is partly made. Ageing for 6 months and light filtration before bottling during the spring time. 2.5 grs dosage
