The grapes for this wine come from La Perthe a parcel located in Ludes on one of the top slopes of the Montagne de Reims. The site is unusual: cold and windy with predominantly sandy soils. Despite these nominal trials of terroir, the vineyard has a “perfectly balanced canopy” that yields a highly sophisticated wine. The nose is delicate with aromas of red fruit, pink grapefruit, dried herbs and a gentle minerality. The palate reveals the true depth and complexity of this wine. Broad through the mouth, bright acidity is balanced by a richness of cherries and plums and sweet spices that persist on the finish.

About Hure Freres

Hure Frere is a family business through and through. Run by brothers François and Pierre, with guidance from their father Raoul, this winery harnasses the potential of Ludes; a fantastic Premier Cru on the Reims mountain. The brothers believe that great Champagne starts in the vines, and they farm all their vineyards using Biodynamic and Organic practices. A far cry from the industrial style farming favoured by big Champagne houses. 

Their attention to detail may be micro-local but their outlook is global. They cite Hubert De Montille from Domaine de Montille in Volnay for his amazing way to express each vineyard, and Mat Donaldson from Pegasus Bay Winery in New Zealand as influences and inspiration.
