The 2018 Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Les Grandes Crayères 1er Cru is a savory, intensely mineral and driven wine. Chalk, mint, white flowers and dried herbs all grace this linear, taut Champagne. The Crayères is understated and classy from start to finish. It's classic Laherte all the way. Dosage is 2-4 grams per liter. Disgorged: November, 2021.

There’s a lot to explore in these new releases from Laherte. Most of the wines are a bit softer than usual, which is probably a reflection of the warmer base vintages in many of the bottlings. What I admire most about these Champagnes is their purity and singularity of expression. Varietal and site character are always front and center. Organic/biodynamic farming and a minimalist approach in the cellar inform these wonderfully distinctive Champagnes. It’s next to impossible to choose favorites in this range.
