Larmandier-Bernier Latitude Extra Brut NV

Bottle

A 100% Côte des Blancs chardonnay champagne from vineyards on the southern side of the village of Vertus. The vineyards are roughly on the same latitude, hence the name of the wine. Latitude also hints at the ‘wide’ effect the wine has on the palate. It is a rounder style of Blanc de Blancs than its stablemate, Longitude.

Best enjoyed from the Lehmann Jamesse Prestige, Grand Champagne 45 handmade glass.

Larmandier-Bernier Latitude Extra Brut NV

Bottle

Composition

100% Côte des Blancs chardonnay based on the 2016 vintage with 40% reserve wines that go back to 2004. The grapes are from vineyards on the southern side of Vertus, all on roughly the same latitude. Austrian wood casks are mostly used in the cellar, both the alcoholic and the malolactic fermentation begin naturally and there is no filtering or fining. Aged in bottle for more than two years, they are disgorged by hand six months before being taken to market. Dosage is 4 grams per litre/L

Taste

As its name suggests it is has breadth and is textural on the palate, showing deep stone fruit flavour, finishing with precision and a citrusy, chalky salinity.

Food match

Very versatile with food, a good old-fashioned lemon-stuffed roast chicken and crispy potatoes is a perfect accompaniment.
