Champagne Larmandier-Bernier Longitude Blanc De Blanc Vertus 1er Cru Nv


| /

2015 base with 35-40% reserve wines going back to 2004, disgorged in March 2019. The name here refers to the 'vertical' nature of the geographic locations of the vineyards as well as the style of wine that results from the very chalky soils of these sites i.e., a more linear, mineral style of wine. To be specific, the vineyards are located in Cramant, Avize, Oger, and Vertus (north of the village). While Latitude is expansive across the palate, Longitude is all about minerality, line and raciness. This is again 100% Côte des Blancs Chardonnay, yet the vineyards from which it is drawn have top soils that are much thinner and the vine's roots plunge straight into the chalky bedrock. Note: review below refers to the 2014 base.

Blend : Chardonnay (100%)
