Champagne Laherte Freres

The Laherte family has a long history in the region. Jean-Baptiste Laherte set up the family estate in 1889, planting most of the vines in the village of Chavot.

The estate gradually grew over generations, and covers today over 11 hectares through the Champagne region with most of their vineyards being organically or biodynamically farmed.

Since 2005, Aurélien Laherte - the seventh generation, has been giving a new dimension to the estate, while following in the footsteps of his father Thierry and his uncle Christian, the Laherte brothers.

Now part of a dynamic, young generation of vignerons making waves in Champagne and producing a fine array of terroir-driven Champagnes using a natural approach to viticulture, the estate has become one of the most progressive and dynamic "rising stars" in the appellation.

Along with his high school friend Raphael Bérêche – another star in the region, Aurélien founded the “Terres et Vins” group of Champagne producers in 2009. This group taps some of Champagne’s more progressive and like-minded producers, including Agrapart and Marie-Courtin.
