Larmandier Bernier


Latitude Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne

Light straw with just the faintest hint of green flecks. Impressive perlage with a plethora of tiny, effusive bubbles. A remarkable and delicate bouquet upon opening. Lovely, lovely expressions of pears and honey, lemons with a twist of lime, apples and dried peaches. Pretty flowers and toasty brioche bread.

When it comes to Larmandier-Bernier elegance is always a major factor. Consistently plush and a notch above. Pure Chardonnay aged on lees for two years with 40% of the blend coming from a perpetual reserve dating back to 2004. Extra Brut with a dosage of 4 g/l. This bottle is a more recent disgorgement that will benefit from more time even though it’s non vintage.

Despite this being their entry level bottle the purity is almost shockingly excellent. Sharp acidity and wonderful tension. That delight and immaculacy transfers to the tongue with chalk and salinity. Lemon curd, mushrooms, and roasted nuts. Medium long finish that you wish lasted for just a few heartbeats more. Beautiful, as always.

Love the combination of ‘09 richness and non-dosage / BdB lightness. Brilliant champagne. Green apple, lemon curd, apricot, a little biscuit dough and chalk — 24 days ago

Vieille Vigne du Levant Extra Brut Grand Cru Champagne Blend 2008

A few years since my last bottle and an utterly spectacular showing. Intense nose with florals, honey, soft vanilla, loads of citrus. On the palate, fantastic acidity and density. This is so pure and fresh, with more citrus and soft vanilla, but such a generous mouthfeel. Sad this is my last bottle, but this is drinking so well right now. — a month ago

Slight sherry sotolon quality noted - but mineral driven and complex. Extra brut level doseage works well. — a month ago
