1.5 Liters. Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs This Grower Champagne has aromas of smoke, minerals, chalk and pears emerge as this generous yet subtle wine opens up in the glass. Sweet floral notes develop with air, but minerality is prevalent, particularly on the finish, which is elegant and refined. D&M Tasting Notes
The NV Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs 1er Cru Longitude is powerful, resonant and beautifully textured in the glass. This is the Larmandier-Bernier style at its best. Almond, dried flower, lemon confit, chamomile and mint are all laced together in a super-expressive, resonant Champagne that is firing on all cylinders today. Ample and enveloping, the Longitude is a wine of pure and total class. Longitude is 1005 Chardonnay taken from chalk and limestone-rich sites in Vertus, Cramant and Oger that sit at the same longitude. Of these, only Vertus is a 1er Cru village, as Cramant and Oger are both Grand Crus. 94 Points Antonio Galloni, Vinous November 2018
Vinification and maturation The natural alcoholic fermentation (natural yeast) and the malolactic fermentation begin spontaneously in our temperature-controlled, stainless-steel vats. The wines are left on their lees during the winter. The reserve wines are stored in casks and in wooden vats. The wines are blended and bottled in May, after being very lightly strained. The bottles are then taken down into our cellars and horizontally stacked. The second fermentation and the maturation 'on laths' quietly take place in the coolness of our cellars. All the bottles are disgorged manually 3 to 6 months before being marketed. The dosage is 4 grams per litre (it is extra-brut).
