Larmandier-Bernier : Latitude Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs

A generous and refined Blanc de Blancs champagne

The producer

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.

The wine

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.

Vinification and ageing

Produced since 2004, Larmandier-Bernier's Latitude Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs is composed of 40% reserve wines.

Gentle pressing before settling and racking. Natural alcoholic fermentation then malolactic fermentation in barrels and tuns, as well as the first year's ageing on lees. After blending, additional bottle ageing for at least 2 years is carried out in the House’s naturally cooled cellars. Disgorgement is carried out 6 months before being released. The dosage is 4 g/litre.

The blend

Latitude Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs by Larmandier-Bernier is a 100% Chardonnay.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The latest rendition of NV Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Latitude is excellent, offering up aromas of lemon oil, wet stones and white flowers. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, bright and precise, with good concentration, racy acids, an ultra-fine mousse and a long, chalky finish. As usual, this is a classy introduction to the Larmandier-Bernier range.
