System wide markdown on a very good grower-producer Champagne:
NV Laherte Frères Ultradition Brut Champagne
Released back in February at $48.75 and it was a good value at that price.
Now marked down to $39.75 and I think it's a "back the truck up" proposition at the new price.
Not sure whose note this is. Found it on Chambers St Wine's website:
60% Pinot Meunier, 30% Chardonnay that doesn't go through malolactic fermentation, along with 10% Pinot Noir. There is a delicate red fruit quality — pale plums — but otherwise the high-toned Chardonnay comes through with a delightful lemon tone. Earthy salinity and minerals lead to a dry, mouth-watering finish. A large percentage of Meunier gives this Champagne a broad, rich, earthy character that matches very well with Beau Soleil oysters and Caviar. MSB
