Tasting notes: Brut Tradition Extra-Brut from the house of Larmandier-Bernier is a champagne which offers supreme balance between freshness and fruit, enriched with a touch of vinosity, and is ideal as an aperitif. Charming at any time of day (or night…), its harmonious and fully round character will delight any palate.

The name “Latitude” was chosen to characterise better this very roundcuvée, with its rich, charming style.It is made exclusively from Chardonnay grapes which all come from the same “latitude”: the south of Vertus. Agenerousterroir andgrapes picked fully ripe: the Latitudecuvée is the festive Champagne par excellence, which nonetheless retains the characteristic purity of the estate’s Champagnes.

The NV Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Latitude 1er Cru is a powerful, driving wine that exemplifies the house style at Larmandier-Bernier. There's real texture and breadth here. Citrus, dried almond, chamomile and crushed flowers build in a beautifully resonant, expressive Champagne that shows the natural richness that is common in the southern part of Vertus. This release is 60% 2018 and 40% a perpetual reserve that goes back to 2004. It's fabulous. Dosage is 4 grams per liter. Disgorged: April, 2021.

91 / 100 Parker

Based on the 2017 vintage and disgorged in January 2020 with four grams per liter dosage, the latest release of the NV Extra-Brut Blanc de Blancs Latitude is lovely, wafting from the glass with notes of citrus oil, pear, fresh bread and blanched almonds. Medium to full-bodied, ample and charming, with an enveloping core of fruit and a pillowy mousse, this cuvée takes its name from its provenance from parcels that share the same latitude: that's to say, the south of Vertus, which routinely delivers a sunnier, rounder style.

94 / 100 Decanter

Chalky minerality, lemon peel and spring blossom on the palate and the smell of freshly-baked bread. Tiny bubbles. I'd expect most students to get this as a Blanc de Blancs from Champagne. Bonus points for anyone who spots the Extra Brut dosage. Natasha Hughes MW

Pierre and Sophie Larmandier and their sons Arthur and now Georges too (joined September 2021) are determined to make wines as true as possible to their origins in their different vineyards. These are split into around fifty separate parcels spread across the Côte des Blancs in the grand cru villages of Cramant, Chouilly, Oger and Avize, and the premier cru of Vertus.

All but three of the parcels (representing 0.5 hectares) are farmed using non-officially certified biodynamic methods. Wines are made only from their own 15 hectares of vines, which are on average 33 years old. All of their Champagnes are the purest expressions of Chardonnay. 

Working only with natural yeasts the influence of 'terroir' is all important to the style of his wines, so much so that he uses a minimum 'dosage' (if at all) so as not to mask the wines natural characteristics.

Pierre has recently changed the 'Tradition' cuvée, re-launching it as 'Latitude', and it is now also a Blanc de Blancs, with its origins in the vineyards south of Vertus. The old 'Blanc de Blancs cuvée, which is known henceforth as 'Longitude', comes exclusively from vineyards on the Cote de Blancs itself and is classified Premier Cru'.

The Pinot Noir is now reserved exclusively for Pierre's distinctive dark rosé and for the Vertus Rouge Coteaux Champenois.
