SKU: LAHLONBDN18
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 to the wine’s extended aging: 18 months in barrel and a further 18-20 months in bottle. The fruit is sourced from a single hectare of biodynamic vines in Chamery, Montagne de Reims, owned by a good friend of Aurélien Laherte’s. The 35-year-old vines are rooted in clay and silts over a limestone base. The wine was 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 four grams per litre.

Wine Style

Sparkling - full and complex

Palate

The acidity is firmer here than in the Vignes d’Autrefois and it has a chewy austerity that is a very typical character derived from the limestone soils of Champagne. Fans of Pinot Noir on limestone should move to the front of the queue.
