The French winery is located in the municipality of Chavot-Courcourt (Département Marne) in Champagne. It was founded in 1889 by Jean-Baptiste Laherte. Today it is managed in the 5th generation by the brothers Thierry and Christian Laherte, but the 6th and 7th generation are already working in the business. The vineyards cover eleven hectares in the Vallée de la Marne and on the southern slopes of Epernay. All the varieties authorised in Champagne are cultivated, namely Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Petit Meslier and Arbane. Some of the vines are over 70 years old. The yield is limited to "4,000 kg grapes = 9 barrels". The cultivation during the vegetation cycle is carried out using traditional methods close to nature.
Serious sources on the internet are rare - and Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one such source. When researching for my articles, I regularly consult the wein.plus encyclopaedia. There I get reliable and detailed information.Thomas Götz
