Larmandier-Bernier : Longitude Premier Cru Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs

Champagne - White - 12.5° Larmandier-Bernier Larmandier-Bernier 0 3148/NM
  • Parker : 93
  • J. Robinson : 16.5+
The cuvée Longitude 1er Cru Extra Brut from Larmandier Bernier is historically known under the name of Blanc de Blancs and comes exclusively from Chardonnay from Côte des Blancs. This champagne has a nice golden robe. Notes of citrus fruits and almonds are released on the nose. A few hints of bergamot, smoke, minerals and pear as well as floral notes lead to a rich, tight-knit taste in an intense freshness. This champagne has suave and charming bubbles ending with slightly nutty notes of yellow fruits.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Its fruit sources spanning all of the prominent villages along the Cote des Blancs in which they have holdings is what prompted Larmandier-Bernier's NV Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Longitude L1009-12 to acquire its current name. (It was long simply referred to as the estate's "Blanc de Blancs.") Nutty, herbal suffusion of pear, lemon, and green zebra tomato makes for a succulently juicy as well as intriguing cuvee that contrasts sharply - no doubt as intended - with the corresponding "Latitude" bottling. Here we haven't the aromatic fireworks - though a haunting evocation of flowered, grassy meadow emerges as the wine sits open - but there is an especially fascinating mid-palate exchange with, in part, ineffable elements of broadly mineral nature, leading to a finish of remarkable salivary compulsion and sheer length. This exceptional value in Champagne should merit following for at least 3-4 years.
