Larmandier Bernier Latitude Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne

Latitude is a 100% Côte des Blancs Chardonnay, predominantly grown, as it always has been, in vineyards on the southern side of Vertus. These are vineyards on roughly the same "Latitude", and the name also hints at the breadth of texture that the wines from these clay rich soils tend to offer up, even when only Chardonnay is used. In the cuverie Larmandier uses a combination of neutral barrel, foudre (almost all the wood now comes from Stockinger in Austria) and less and less steel tank. The alcoholic and malolactic fermentations take place without inoculation, and there's no fining or filtration. Bottle maturation takes place quietly over a period of more than 2 years, and each bottle is disgorged manually 6 months before being released and dosed with a very low 3-4 grams per litre (i.e., it is an extra brut). Immaculately crafted as ever, the most recent bottlings offer cut-diamond grace and precision, citrusy, chalky energy and a succulent, textured core. This stunning Blanc de Blancs is a blend of 60% 2013 and 40% reserve wines (from 2011 and 2012), disgorged in September 2016.

"The NV Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Latitude 1er Cru is a big, vinous wine. Bold, ample and large on the palate, the Latitude exudes power. Dried apricot, roasted nuts and spices are pushed forward in a rich, creamy wine that reflects the personality of these clay-rich soils on the southern edge of Vertus. With time in the glass, the Latitude gains freshness, volume and intensity. The current release is 60% 2013, with 40% reserve wines. Dosage is 4 grams per liter. Disgorged: January 2016." 92 points, Antonio Galloni, vinous.com Dec 2016
