Champagne Laherte Frères Les Longues Voyes Blanc de Noirs 2016

Grape Variety: Champagne
Limited release 100% Pinot Noir. This is just the third release of Aurelien Lahertes Pinot Noir based Blanc de Noirs. Les Longues Voyes translates as the long way, referring not only to the 25 km that you need to travel from the Laherte Estate to arrive at the vineyard, but also the wines extended aging 18 months in barrel and 18 to 20 months in bottle. The fruit is sourced from a single hectare of biodynamic vines in Chamery, in the Montagne de Reims, owned by a good friend of Aurelien Lahertes. The 35 year old vines are rooted in clay and silts over a limestone base. It is made from a single four tonne press of grapes which was naturally fermented and matured in old Clos des Epeneaux and Leroux barrels. There was no malo and the dosage was a low four grams per litre. There is a real sense of gravitas here. I would give it a year or two in the cellar, as it is very tight. The Les Longues Voyes sees relatively long aging in barrel of 18 months. Dosage is 4 grams per liter. 94 points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous.
