100% Pinot Noir.
Peter Liem, one of the foremost Champagne experts and enthusiasts, called Benoit Lahaye “one of the finest growers in the Montagne de Reims.” From his estate in the Grand Cru village of Bouzy, Benoit crafts tiny amounts of exquisite Champagne built on texture and precision. Lahaye’s wines are ample, powerful, but also finely sculpted, with a backbone of chalky minerality, always a hallmark of the finest wines from Bouzy. An ardent believer in biodynamic viticulture, Lahaye was certified organic in 2007 and biodynamic in 2010.
"Disgorged with 2.5 gams per liter dosage, Lahaye's NV Rosé de Macération saw a day or two of maceration in tank before pressing, followed by vinification in amphora and barrel. Bursting with aromas of peonies, blood orange, red berries and spices, it's medium to full-bodied, pillowy and flavorful, with lively acids and a saline finish." 92 pts, William Kelley, WA, April 2020
