Les Vignes d’Autrefois – 94 Vinous

The 2018 Extra Brut Vignes d’Autrefois is a selection of 100% Meunier sourced from vines planted between 1947 and 1964. Deeply-pitched and vinous, the Autrefois fills out beautifully with a bit of time in the glass. The aromatics alone are thrilling, but all the elements are so well balanced. Old-vine Meunier planted on chalk yields a Champagne that deftly balances richness with vibrancy. The Autrefois nimbly captures the essence of the house style. It's a gorgeous Champagne from Laherte. Dosage is 2-4 grams per liter. Disgorged: November, 2021.

Selected old vine, massale selection parcels of Meunier planted between 1947 and 1953 in the villages of Chavot and Mancy. Soils are clay and silt with flint, small stones and chalky subsoils. Primary fermentation takes place in neutral barrels from Burgundy, aged 6 months with regular lees stirring, no malo, dosage of 2-4 gr/l. Intended as a tribute to their ancestors and to the Meunier grape.
