WHAT THE CRITICS ARE SAYING

“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.” William Kelley, The Wine Advocate

OUR NOTES

Biodynamic since 2004, the Larmandier-Bernier family cultivates a total of 15 hectares in the grand and premier cru villages of Vertus, Oger, Avize, Cramant and Chouilly. All the cuvees are connected to specific terroirs and thus represent different characters.  

In the 1990s, Pierre Larmandier and his wife Sophie began to work the soils of their vineyards and abandoned the use of herbicides, moving toward organic and then biodynamic farming.

Pierre's father had always advocated picking mature fruit, and with the new farming methods, the wines became almost too concentrated and tightly wound, he relates. So, changes in the winery followed suit: fermentation in wood—foudres, demi-muids and barrels (today, mainly from Stockinger)—instead of stainless steel, and the use of ambient instead of selected yeasts.  

Today, Larmandier-Bernier numbers among the Côte de Blanc's—and Champagne's—finest estates.
