Laherte Extra Brut Rose de Meunier N.V.
“One of the many highlights in this range, the NV Extra Brut Rosé de Meunier is powerful, vinous and structured. It is also quite reticent and not at all forthcoming. A bit more time in bottle should do the trick, though. Hints of rose petal, mint, game, dried herbs and licorice add intrigue to a Rosé that is at once powerful and laser-like in its focus. There is plenty of Meunier character, and yet the best is very clearly yet to come. The current release is a blend of equal parts 2016 and 2015 done in a pretty unique style that blends 60% white pressed Meunier, 30% rosé de saignée, 10% still red Meunier, an approach that works beautifully here. The Rosé de Meunier is basically the same wine as the Ultradition Rosé, but with lower dosage. Dosage: 2.5 gr/L. Disgorged: October, 2018. Drinking window: 2019-2019. 94 points”
