Larmandier-Bernier ‘Latitude’ Brut NV
The Larmandier and Bernier families have been contributing to the reputation of Côte des Blancs Champagne for 8 generations, since 1765. They hold and manage a number of different sites along the Côte, that stretches south of Epernay however the bulk of their holdings is around the Premier Cru site of Vertus. The cuvee ‘Latitude’ is made from only Chardonnay picked from vineyards just south of Vertus around the same latitude, creating a sumptuous rounded style of champagne with an addition of 40% reserve wine. Expect notes of brioche, seafoam and pithy citrus, on the palate it is rich and has a generous mouth filling bead. An exceptional example of grower producer wine from Champagne! Drink with beautiful fresh shellfish, like oysters or prawns.
