Biodynamic and organic - A fine and complex blending excellent for aperitif. "Bright, appley and fragrant, this feels fresh and easy to drink, buttressed by taut, lively acidity. It finishes with brightly citrusy fragrance, its tangerine-like flavors showing energy and vigor." - Peter Leim, champagneguide.net

The Laherte NV Brut Ultradition Disg. 10/2012 - 60% Meunier; 30% Chardonnay; 10% Pinot -is exuberantly dominated by juicy and vivacious lime, peach, grapefruit, and Persian as well as honeydew melons, their succulent fruit mingled on a polished palate with nut oils and shitake, as well as suffused with a saliva-drawing sweet-saline, iodine-rich savor of crab and lobster shell reduction that makes for a compelling finish. Yes, this is certainly a capital "U" umami-rich wine! I'm astounded to realize - given its sense of energy and vivacity - that it is based on vintage 2009. Whatever be "ultradition," it's an approach I can only heartily commend to other growers! (Nov 2013)
