RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Based on the 2016 vintage—complemented by reserve wines from 2015 and 2014—and disgorged in April 2019 with five grams per liter dosage, the NV Brut Blanc de Blancs Ultradition unwinds in the glass with notes of warm bread, green apple, citrus oil and peach. Medium to full-bodied, bright and incisive, with a fleshy core of lively fruit, a pinpoint mousse and racy spine of acidity, it's already drinking well.

The NV Brut Ultradition is fascinating to taste next to the Extra Brut version. A bit of dosage helps soften some of the contours present in that wine while also adding quite a bit of freshness in the citrus and floral-laced flavors that emerge. This release is 60% 2018 and 40% reserve wines from 2017 and 2016. Dosage is 6-8 grams per liter.

Cloves and dried flower stems with lemon rind, chamomile and green apples. Medium-bodied with lovely fruit and a creamy texture. Delicious finish. 60% pinot meunier, 30% chardonnay and 10% pinot noir. Dosage 4,5g/L. Disgorged in February 2022. Drink now.

Champagne Laherte Freres, France
Champagne Laherte Freres Winery Image
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.

The fifth generation, that of Michel Laherte, expanded the family estate which then covered about 5 hectares. He married Cécile Tissier, who was born into an 8-child-family. She quickly got used to working in the vineyard and managed to combine her work as a dynamic vinegrower with the education of her two children, Christian and Thierry.

Today, the 11-hectare-vineyard is run by the two Laherte brothers, as well as Thierry’s son, Aurélien. Since 2004, the seventh generation has been giving a new dimension to the estate. Indeed, following in his father’s footsteps, Aurélien understood that the estate’s true philosophy lies in taking time to do things well and being satisfied with naturally ripe and healthy grapes.

Today, all the family members are working hand in hand to preserve this precious Terroir passed on by their forefathers and to try and create wines that are just like them - pure, sincere and authentic.

Associated with luxury, celebration, and romance, the region, Champagne, is home to the world’s most prized sparkling wine. In order to bear the label, ‘Champagne’, a sparkling wine must originate from this northeastern region of France—called Champagne—and adhere to strict quality standards. Made up of the three towns Reims, Épernay, and Aÿ, it was here that the traditional method of sparkling wine production was both invented and perfected, birthing a winemaking technique as well as a flavor profile that is now emulated worldwide.

Well-drained, limestone and chalky soil defines much of the region, which lend a mineral component to its wines. Champagne’s cold, continental climate promotes ample acidity in its grapes but weather differences from year to year can create significant variation between vintages. While vintage Champagnes are produced in exceptional years, non-vintage cuvées are produced annually from a blend of several years in order to produce Champagnes that maintain a consistent house style.

With nearly negligible exceptions, . These can be blended together or bottled as individual varietal Champagnes, depending on the final style of wine desired. Chardonnay, the only white variety, contributes freshness, elegance, lively acidity and notes of citrus, orchard fruit and white flowers. Pinot Noir and its relative Pinot Meunier, provide the backbone to many blends, adding structure, body and supple red fruit flavors. Wines with a large proportion of Pinot Meunier will be ready to drink earlier, while Pinot Noir contributes to longevity. Whether it is white or rosé, most Champagne is made from a blend of red and white grapes—and uniquely, rosé is often produce by blending together red and white wine. A Champagne made exclusively from Chardonnay will be labeled as ‘blanc de blancs,’ while ones comprised of only red grapes are called ‘blanc de noirs.’

A term typically reserved for Champagne and Sparkling Wines, non-vintage or simply “NV” on a label indicates a blend of finished wines from different vintages (years of harvest). To make non-vintage Champagne, typically the current year’s harvest (in other words, the current vintage) forms the base of the blend. Finished wines from previous years, called “vins de reserve” are blended in at approximately 10-50% of the total volume in order to achieve the flavor, complexity, body and acidity for the desired house style. A tiny proportion of Champagnes are made from a single vintage.

There are also some very large production still wines that may not claim one particular vintage. This would be at the discretion of the winemaker’s goals for character of the final wine.
