Benoît Lahaye is situated in Bouzy, a Grand Cru village in the Montagne de Reims. His family has been making Champagne since the 1930’s, and he and his wife Valérie now work in their winery with their two sons. The estate has been fully organic since 2003, and 2007 was the first vintage to be certified. Since 2009, Lahaye has been applying the principles of biodynamic viticulture to further the every-day work, improve the characteristics of the terroir, and reveal the full potential of the soil and the vines. The Brut Nature is 90% pinot noir and 10% chardonnay, with 80% of the grapes coming from Bouzy and 20% from Ambonnay. It is also always composed of a high percentage of reserve wines, with the current release being 50% 2015 and 50% a blend of 2012, 2013, and 2014 vintages. The wines are aged for an average of 30 months on the lees with 1 or 2 stirrings before being bottled without fining/filtration with no dosage. It is precise and comlpex with elegant mousse and notes of fresh Bosc pear, green apple skin, croissant, fresh whipped cream, tender spring blossoms, pea tendrils, and quince.
