Champagne Brut Nature, Cuvée Violaine, Benoit Lahaye - 2016

This is, to say the least, an original wine, on the edge, where taking risks pays off, since the aromatic profile alone stands out and charms from the outset: very beautiful aromas of red fruit, violet, evolving on toasted sesame, with hints of dried orange peel. The palate is very classy, fresh, slender, long and silky, with the inimitable "looseness" of wines without So2, while retaining an astonishing precision. Guide Vert RVF: 95/100

The Lahaye family have been winegrowers since the 1930s. The current generation, Benoît, his wife Valérie, and now their children Etienne and Valentin, are still based in the family village of Bouzy. The couple cultivates (certified organic since 2003 and biodynamic since 2010) a little less than 5 hectares of vines, mainly pinot noir, spread over Bouzy, Ambonnay and Tauxières-Mutry. He has also launched new cuvées: Violaine (no sulphur), Le Jardin de la Grosse Pierre (plot selection and ancestral grape varieties) and now even a Blanc de Blancs, in the land of pinot! Today, the company is recognised for the seriousness of its work, the constant quality of its wines and the maintenance of a faultless range, and its recognition extends beyond the borders of France. It has even crossed the Atlantic...
