Champagne Larmandier Bernier 'Longitude' Blanc de Blancs Premier Cru Cru Extra Brut

Sourced from a line of villages on the same meridian: Vertus, Oger, Avize and Cramant, the ‘Longitude’ cuvée (previously called ‘Blanc de Blancs’) alludes to the wine’s great length of flavour, as well as the very pure, frank and mineral style of these great terroirs, where the chalk is very close to the surface. Aged for more than 2 years before disgorgement, as well as for 6 months post disgorgement. “Disgorged in December 2018 and based on the 2015 vintage, the latest release of NV Extra-Brut Blanc de Blancs Premier Cru Longitude is showing very well indeed, opening in the glass with a classy and youthfully reserved bouquet of lemon oil, freshly baked bread, crisp yellow orchard fruit and wet chalk. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, elegantly textural and concentrated, with racy acids, terrific tension and a pinpoint mousse. This new disgorgement is especially harmonious and complete. Longitude is routinely one of the region’s finest values; indeed, along with Egly-Ouriet’s VP bottling, this is one of my two “house” Champagnes” Wine Advocate, May 2020, 93 points

Behind the bottle: Champagne Larmandier Bernier

Averaging 33 years of age, Larmandier-Bernier’s 15 hectares of vineyards lie on the spectacular terroirs of the Côte des Blancs: Vertus, a 1er cru village, as well as the Grand Crus Cramant, Chouilly, Oger and Avize. Overall 85% is planted with Chardonnay and 15% Pinot Noir. According to Pierre and Sophie Larmandier, “the creation of a great Champagne, like the creation of any great wine, begins in the vineyard.” This philosophy is why they manage their vineyards biodynamically, harvesting their grapes manually at optimal ripeness to produce extraordinary expressions of each terroir. Their vines are cultivated with respect for the terroir (ploughing, which favours deep-reaching roots and preserves the life of the soil) and for the plant throughout the growing period. Pressing is undertaken as gently as possible to extract the purest juice only. Each cru is vinified separately. Fermentations using natural yeasts in a mixture of stainless steel vats, wooden casks and barrels, together with long, slow ageing at either Brut Nature (0 g/l) or Extra Brut (2-5 g/l) dosage levels allow for as clear expressions as possible.

“Larmandier-Bernier is a huge favourite with me. The quality of the wines is stupendous and joyful.” Jancis Robinson MW, Purple Pages of JancisRobinson.co.uk
