"The Larmandier-Bernier Champagnes are some of the purest and most utterly engaging wines being made in the region today. I can't recommend them highly enough." - Antonio Galloni. "Bready, complex, mature bouquet, but bright and fresh as well. Very rich, deep, mouth-filling flavour, lively acidity. Fresh and bright, a more linear style than the Latitude. It has superb line and length, is fine and vivid and lively. A joyous wine." - 95 points, Huon Hooke

Bready, complex, mature bouquet, but bright and fresh as well. Very rich, deep, mouth-filling flavour, lively acidity. Fresh and bright, a more linear style than the Latitude. It has superb line and length, is fine and vivid and lively. A joyous wine. (East-facing slopes. 2012 base with 40% reserve wines. Min 2 years on lees. Disgorged Sept '16. 4 g/l dosage)

Very mineral in style, a blend of Chardonnay from Avize, Cramant and Vertus. Crisp, dry, tight and packed with citrus. It's an impressively mineral wine, bringing out all the character of the chalk soil of Champagne's Côte des Blancs.

The NV Brut Blanc de Blancs Premier Cru is elegance personified. Smoke, minerals, chalk and pears emerge as this generous yet subtle wine opens up in the glass. Sweet floral notes develop with air, but minerality is this wine's calling card, particularly on the finish, which is incredibly elegant and refined. Simply put, this is gorgeous juice. The NV Brut Blanc de Blancs Premier Cru is 60% 2005 wine, with the addition of 40% reserve wines from 2004 and 2002. Though labeled premier cru, only the fruit from Vertus is premier, all of the fruit from Cramant, Avize and Oger is grand cru. This bottling was aged in stainless steel and bottled with 4 grams of dosage. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2013.
