The NV Cuvée Latitude Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs from Larmandier Bernier is composed of Chardonnay exclusively from the same latitude on the southern edge of Vertus. It is a big, vinous wine with a well-balanced acidity. Bold, ample and large on the palate, Latitude exudes power. Dried apricot, roasted nuts and spices are pushed forward in a rich, creamy wine that reflects the personality of these clay-rich soils. With time in the glass, this classy and elegant wine gains freshness, volume and intensity.
William Kelley, Apr 2019, Robert Parker / The Wine Advocate 91/100 points : The latest rendition of NV Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Latitude is excellent, offering up aromas of lemon oil, wet stones and white flowers. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, bright and precise, with good concentration, racy acids, an ultra-fine mousse and a long, chalky finish. As usual, this is a classy introduction to the Larmandier-Bernier range.
