Laherte Frères Ultradition Extra Brut NV

Bottle

Composition

Ultradition NV is the cuvée that Aurélien Laherte, seventh generation vigneron, is most proud of. It remains a blend of Meunier (60%), Chardonnay (30%) and Pinot Noir (10%) and is remarkable in its ability to highlight individual personalities of each grape variety.

All grapes are sustainably farmed and hand-harvested from several plots across eight villages of the Coteaux Sud d’Epernay and Vallée de la Marne. Vines have an average age of 30 years and fermentation vessels include used Burgundy barrels (some are as old as 25 years, to handle the aromatic and delicate Meunier).

The current release is a 2016 base with 40% comprised of a reserve from 2015 and 2014.

Dosage is 4.5 g/L with disgorgement by hand in November 2019 and the bottle is specially labelled with a replica of a family original.

Taste

Being uniquely Meunier–dominant, the cuvée offers aromas of crunchy red apple, pear and dewy florals with a touch of almond and cream. Chardonnay provides a cleansing citrus acidity on the finish while Pinot Noir gives depth and solidity. This cuvée is as charming and captivating as its fine bubbles.

Glass match

Best enjoyed from a Lehmann Jamesse, Grand Champagne 41 glass.

Food match

Wonderful as an apéritif, or paired with oysters, and tuna or salmon sashimi.
