Larmandier-Bernier - NV Latitude Blanc De Blanc Extra Brut

NV Latitude Blanc De Blanc Extra Brut

Champagne, France

Do you like Champagne? Look. No. Further. Grower Champagne is where it’s at and Larmandier-Bernier set the standard.

The Latitude is a 100% Côte des Blancs Chardonnay from vineyards on the southern side of Vertus, the 1er cru vineyard. Instead of steel or concrete, the fermenting juice goes to barrel, giving these wines an unmistakable texture. Left to rest underground for two years, disgorged by hand, these wines are in the hands of artisans.

Popped, creamy white mousse leading to pale straw coloured wine, glimmering with gold. Bosc pear, citrus, yeast lees, light baked bread and hints of sherbet. Long, dry full of acid, there’s a definite nuttiness and buttery finish. You can let this wine go still and still enjoy it just as much. Champagne days are here to stay!
