CHAMPAGNE A SECRET HISTORY: A NEW BOOK ON CHAMPAGNE the most refreshing, pretension-pricking, myth-busting and amusingly un-frothy book on the subject I've read. ANDREW JEFFORD In the tradition of Kermit Lynch's Adventures on the Wine Route, Bursting Bubbles is a wonderful and informed exploration of the best grower Champagnes and the characters who make them. It shatters old myths and reveals new truths, making Champagne - the place and the wine - as intriguing, beautiful and magical as ever. ANDREA FROST
Latitude is a 100 percent Côte des Blancs Chardonnay, This release is 60% 2015 and 40% reserve wines, predominantly grown in vineyards on the southern side of the Champagne sub region of Vertus. These are vineyards on roughly the same Latitude, and hence the name also hints at the breadth of texture that the wines from these more clay rich soils tend to offer up, even when only Chardonnay is used. In the cuverie Larmandier uses a combination of stainless steel, neutral barrel, and foudre.

It encapsulates the gorgeous freshness of young Vertus chardonnay in its grapefruit, freshly picked apple and lemon blossom aromas, while boring deep into its chalk mineral structure, building great textural presence, amplified by the spicy, nutty complexity of barrel fermentation.
