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

The Huré Family own 10 hectares of vines across the Montagne de Reims. Brothers François and Pierre work under the guidance of their father Raoul in this close-knit family business. They started adopting biodynamic methods in 2006, and fine tune their vineyard work to each individual parcel, something François learned while working in Burgundy.

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.
