“Lahaye’s Blanc de Blancs is a cuvée so rare, so limited, that I had to go through a gauntlet of books, emails, and calls to figure out exactly what was in front of my eyes.”

Benoît Lahaye is among Champagne's most respected, talented, and high-in-demand producers. His micro-production cult bottlings categorically reign as some of the most spellbindingly natural and authentic Champagnes in history. Certified Organic and Biodynamic. Manual plowing with his Auxois horse. Spontaneous fermentation in barrel. Low-to-no sulfur additions. Tiny, handmade production. There’s a reason his name reverberates off every upscale wine bar, decorates the finest wine lists, and is proudly displayed in the cellars of fine wine collectors. This rare offering is a fusion of 2014 & 2015 that was barrel fermented with indigenous yeasts, bottled without sulfur, and corked without any dosage. Let’s be clear, though: this is not a sparkling wine for those who desire ripe, brioche-y opulence, but rather for those who geek out over finesse, terroir expression, and 100% unadulterated Champagne in the glass. You can either decant and treat it like a fine white Burgundy, or experience its ferocious energy in flared tulips; the choice is yours—a choice only a few will ever be lucky to have.
