About this product

A big, ample Champagne, Larmandier-Bernier's NV Longitude wraps around the palate with gorgeous depth and textural richness. Apricot pit, almonds, wild herbs, honey and crushed flowers are some of the notes that meld together on the creamy, expressive finish. The Longitude is made mostly from parcels in the northern sector of Vertus, although 30% of the fruit is sourced from parcels in Cramant, Avize and Oger. (92AG)

-The Blanc de Blancs Premier Cru is elegance personified. 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 this wine's calling card, particularly on the finish, which is incredibly elegant and refined. Simply put, this is gorgeous juice. Though labelled as Premier Cru, only the fruit from Vertus is premier, while all of the fruit from Cramant, Avize and Oger in the blend is Grand Cru. The blend is 60% 2005 wine, with the addition of 40% reserve wine from 2004 and 2002. (91RP)
