This single cru ages for at least 4 years and receives no dosage at all
A wine full of tension and minerality.
Averaging 33 years of age, Larmandier-Bernier’s 15 hectares of vineyards lie on the spectacular terroirs of the Côte des Blancs: Vertus, a 1er cru village, as well as the Grand Crus Cramant, Chouilly, Oger and Avize. According to Pierre and Sophie Larmandier, “the creation of a great Champagne, like the creation of any great wine, begins in the vineyard.” This philosophy is why they manage their vineyards biodynamically, harvesting their grapes manually at optimal ripeness to produce extraordinary expressions of each terroir.
Fermentations using natural yeasts in a mixture of stainless steel vats, wooden casks and barrels, together with long, slow aging at either Brut Nature (0g / l) or Extra Brut (2-5g / l) allows for the clearest of expressions.
