Located on the Côte des Blancs terroir, the Larmandier-Bernier Champagne House has been cultivating vines for over 8 generations. Since 1988, Pierre Larmandier has been at the head of the 16-hectare family estate with the ambition of producing exceptional vintages that authentically express the purity of the Champagne terroirs.
The vines are 33 years old on average and have been cultivated for more than 20 years using biodynamic practices and with the utmost respect for the terroir. No chemical products, ploughing, indigenous yeasts, long ageing on lees in barrels and tuns, these are the determining choices that give Larmandier-Bernier wines a rare and unique minerality and expression of the terroir.
Historically called "Tradition", Larmandier Bernier's Latitude Extra-Brut Blanc de Blancs is made exclusively from Chardonnay grapes from the same "latitude", to the south of Vertus. This terroir gives rise to round, rich and highly pure wines.
