Benoît Lahaye

Benoît Lahaye

Benoît Lahaye is located in the village of Bouzy, classified as Grand Cru, Montagne de Reims. The family has been making Champagne since 1930. The mansion is only 4.8 hectares, of which 3 are in Bouzy, 1 in Ambonnay and the rest in Tauxières. In 2010 they received a certificate as a biodynamic manufacturer from Biodyvin. The plantations are 90% Pinot Noir, with southern and southwestern exposure and an average age of 35-40 years. Less than 40,000 bottles are produced per year. In the winery the intervention is minimal and relies only on wild fermentation. Much of the vinification takes place in oak barrels type Bordeaux (225l) and Burgundy (228l). The winery has large windows so that the wine can "see" the season. The champagne of Benoit and Valérie Lahaye is a real wine of its terroir, with amazing complexity and depth, harmony of freshness and concentration, and ripeness of the fruit.

Champagne

Champagne

The Champagne region is located to the northernmost of all the vineyards of France. The distinctive taste and purity of real champagne is certainly due to the calcareous soil and continental growing conditions. Unlike most other wines, it is characteristic of those from Champagne that the vintages of different years are blended to obtain a final product (non-vintage) or different wines from the same vintage are blended - in this case the wine is marked as vintage and its year is indicated on the label. This means, after all, that the quality of the champagne obtained depends very much on the balance between the quality of the grapes and the skills of the oenologists, which is why they are also promoted according to the name of the producer. Thus, in Champagne and around the world, the most famous names are Krug, Mumm, Bollinger, Veuve Clicquot, not to mention the well-known brands Dom Perignon, Moët & Chandon and Taittinger. The grape varieties in this region are Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, which are present in different proportions in Champagne wines. The so-called Blanc de Blanc, made only from Chardonnay grapes, and Blanc de Noir, which is white champagne but made from red Pinot Noir grapes, are also often produced. A curious and little known fact is that in Champagne sparkling rose is made with a mixture of white and red wine, and not as is the standard for the production of rose wine.

Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir is the dominant red wine grape of Burgundy, a challenge for every single vine grower and wine producer. It can be found in Germany (as Spätburgunder), Italy (Pino Nero), Chile, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand and the USA. The wines show a specific aroma of red berries and cherry depending on the vinification method employed - from fresh red cherries in lighter wines to stewed black cherries in weightier examples, many of them also showing hints of earthy flavours.
