Larmandier-Bernier Longitude 1er Cru Blanc de Blancs NV
A wonderfully pure, and precise blanc de blancs by minimal-intervention and biodynamic Champagne grower Larmandier-Bernier!
Longitude originates exclusively from the Chardonnay grapes grown on the Côte des Blancs from Premier Cru vineyards of Vertus, Oger, Avize, Cramant, all of which form a line close to the 4th meridian, giving this cuvée its name.
This non-vintage cuvée contains 40% of wines coming from the estate's perpetual reserve which begun in 2004.
The Larmandier-Bernier estate is located in the Côte des Blancs, in the very heart of Champagne.
Since the 19th century, the Larmandier family have been cultivating their vines in the premier and grand cru vinyards of the Côte des Blancs. Chalk is the keystone of these great terroirs and Larmandier-Bernier strive for wines that express this in the purest way possible.
Larmandier-Bernier are still family owned, and are proudly farming biodynamic across their entire estate, and they utilise indigenous yeasts for fermentation of all their wines.
Continuing their ethos of minimal intervention, there is no fining or filtering of their cuvées.
