Champagne Larmandier Bernier Longitude Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs NV

Regular price $129.00

NV // 750ml // ABV 12%
2013 base with 35-40% reserve wines going back to 2004, disgorged in September 2017. The name here refers to the 'vertical' nature of the geographic locations of the vineyards as well as the style of wine that results from the very chalky soils of these sites - that gift a more linear, mineral style of wine. To be specific, the vineyards are located in Cramant, Avize, Oger, and Vertus (north of the village). Connecting the dots between these communes forms a line close to the fourth meridian. So, Longitude. While Latitude is expansive across the palate, Longitude is all about minerality, line and raciness. This is again 100% Côte des Blancs Chardonnay, yet now the vineyards are all north of the village of Vertus, where the top soils are much thinner and the vine's roots plunge straight into the chalk bedrock. Made in the same fashion as Larmandier's Latitude cuvée, expect a vibrant, crystalline and remarkably refined Champagne, crackling with chalky energy and salinity and with wonderfully bright, citrus, nectarine and white pepper fruit. As with the Latitude cuvée, Longitude is dosed with a low four grams per litre (so Extra Brut). - Bibendum, importer
