Champagne Laherte Frères

Laherte Frères was founded in 1889 in the small village of Chavot-Courcourt on the Coteaux Sud d’Epernay, in the south of Champagne. Initially growing and selling grapes to the local cooperative, the Laherte family steadily expanded their estate over generations, and began bottling champagne under their eponymous label when Thierry and Christian Laherte, brothers and sixth generation vignerons, became proprietors. Now, Aurélien Laherte, Thierry’s son, represents the seventh generation and heads the entire family domaine, patiently tending to an impressive 11ha of vines across 10 different villages.

All seven permitted grape varieties in Champagne A.O.C. are grown over 80 plots that are farmed either organically or biodynamically. As a result, the growing repertoire of unique champagnes that Laherte Frères produces today are fascinating and undeniably terroir-driven, and a devoted paean to sustainable viticulture in the modern age of global warming. The wines reflect an impervious civic duty and moral responsibility to protect Champagne’s future while preserving nature. As Aurélien humbly explains, ‘Nature [comes] first. You follow nature and you help’.
