This vintage champagne from a single parcel of Premier Cru vineyards in Vertus in the Côtes des Blancs is only produced in exceptional vintages, and is the only brut nature made by cult grower champagne producer Larmandier-Bernier. This plot of Chardonnay has been vinified separately since 1995. It’s a parcel named “Les Barillers”, situated mid-slope in Vertus. This terroir is very particular: delicate, saline and, at the same time, very complex. The balance is already present, so no need for any blending. Chardonnay 100%, a single terroir and a single vintage, aged 5 years sur lattes before being hand-riddled and disgorged. Such a mix of richness and brightness. Perfect, silky mousse. Incredible value for a beautiful wine.
