As the name suggests, this is 100 per cent Chardonnay (from Vertus 1er cru, and grands crus Cramant, Avize and Oger), a classic aperitif style - in the best sense of that term. The blend is predominantly 60 per cent 2005 and 40 per cent reserve wine from 2004 and 2002, and a dosage of 4gm

Simply put, this is gorgeous juice.- 91 Points, Antonio Galloni, The Wine Advocate, December 2008

Yields are kept very low by Champagne standards, 50 hl/ha on average. In the winery the approach is classic “minimalist” with indigenous yeasts, long, slow ferments of up to two months and very little sulphur. A mixture of fermenting vessels are utilised including large oak vats and even barriques. Very low dosage levels too and the dosage is designed to be as neutral as possible. Sometimes, as is the case in the “Terre de Vertus” and the Rosé, there is no dosage at all. In other words, everything is designed to maximise the expression of the vineyard, commune and vintage. The resulting wines are wonderful expressions of their origins, fine and delicate, yet with and a mineral intensity that keeps you coming back, sip after sip. They are also remarkably good food wines! Like Egly-Ouriet and Selosse, Larmandier-Bernier has been rated as one of Champagne’s top 5 producers by Andrew Jefford in his celebrated work, The New France
