Vinous, 92 Points 

"The NV Extra Brut Petit Meslier is another new wine in this ever-expanding range. With its naturally bright acids, its no surprise the Petit Meslier is lifted and vibrant in feel. Citrus, white pepper, mint and chalk add a characteristic upper register of nuance. This really sizzles with tension and energy to match its airy personality. The blend is equal parts 2018 and 2017. Dosage is 2 grams per liter." 

James Suckling, 91 Points 

"This is quite funky from long lees contact and needs some aeration to blow that off. However, it’s easy to understand why it was made this way, for it needs the creaminess from the lees and kiss of oak to help harmonize the strident green apple-acidity. A touch of lime at the finish. Made 100% from petit meslier, one of the lesser-known grape varieties of Champagne." 

Wine Advocate, 90 Points 

"Based on the 2018 vintage, with some 40% reserve wines from 2017, the NV Extra-Brut Petit Meslier comes from young vines in Chavot. Offering up generous aromas of pear, honeyed orchard fruit, buttered toast and nuts, it's medium to full-bodied, with an impressively satiny attack for this variety and an unsurprisingly racy spine of acidity. It's more than just a curio." 

Winemaker Notes: 

"A cross between Gouais Blanc and Savagnin, this forgotten grape is close to the Laherte family's heart. After following the evolution of the Petit Meslier in the co-planted parcel of Les 7 (to preserve the diversity of Champagne), the family was struck by its personality and ability to maintain acidities, even in higher temps. This special inaugural release offers aromatic energy and intense freshness."
