Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and crisp
Its straw color with green highlights offers a pretty nose of yellow fruit and fern. In the mouth, this wine is balanced with melted creamy bubbles. The Charles Lafitte Champagne Tradition combines advantageously complexity and vivacity, roundness and freshness.
Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
Do you know ?

Domain and appellation
The champagnes Charles Laffite are part of the Vranken-Pommery Monopole group. Founded in 1976 by Paul-François Vranken, it is the second largest producer of champagne and also owns the largest vineyard in Europe, with over 7,000 hectares under control including 2,500 hectares of vineyards owned.
- Viticulture: The harvest is manual to select the best bunches and keep them intact.
- Vinification: An alcoholic fermentation of 7-15 days precedes a malolactic fermentation in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. The Cuvée Charles Lafitte Brut Tradition is assembled from two dozen different wines, plus nearly 30% of reserve wines. The wine is then aged at least 24 months in the estate's cellars.
