Jean-Baptiste Laherte set up the family estate in 1889, planting most of the vines in the village of Chavost, which was to become Chavot.
The estate gradually grew over generations, and covers today over 11 hectares through the Champagne region. The sixth and seventh generations are now working together to create wines that are just like them - pure, sincere and authentic. They share their experience and combine their efforts to make the most of this beautiful heritage.
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. Passionately, they promote the family’s values and continue to bring the best out of the terroir.
Laherte Frères have created a range of authentic, pure and unique Champagne wines – authentic like the land, pure like the terroir and unique like their work. At Laherte Frères, the expression “terroir wine” takes on full significance.
Today, 80% of the estate’s wines are fermented and matured in wooden receptacles (they own about 350 oak barrels, as well as 6 casks and 1 truncated-cone tank). This enables them to preserve and highlight the features of each locality and to let grow their wines, coming from 75 plots.
