Larmandier-Bernier Latitude Blanc de Blancs Extra Brut NV (France: Champagne) (ID# 3458)

Name Larmandier-Bernier Latitude Blanc de Blancs Extra Brut NV (ID# 3458)
Varietal Chardonnay
Region France: Champagne
Notes "The latest rendition of NV Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Latitude is excellent, offering up aromas of lemon oil, wet stones and white flowers. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, bright and precise, with good concentration, racy acids, an ultra-fine mousse and a long, chalky finish. As usual, this is a classy introduction to the Larmandier-Bernier range." (Wine Advocate)

Additional Notes

"Pierre Larmandier focuses this wine on the fruit from his vines growing in rich, deep soil south of Vertus, blending it with stock from his “perpetual reserve.” Latitude is fruity and bold, with a formidable undertone of acidity, turning the tangerine and lemon-curd flavors toward briskness and pungency. Those flavors last with chalky clarity." (Wine & Spirits Magazine)
