Larmandier-Bernier has been rated as one of Champagne’s top five producers by Andrew Jefford. This estate is meticulously run by Pierre Larmandier and wife Sophie using biodynamic practices.
This replaces the wine known as Brut Tradition, although it is now 100% Côte des Blancs Chardonnay. The fruit for this wine is predominantly grown, as it always has been, in vineyards on the southern side of Vertus. These are vineyards on roughly the same “Latitude”, and this new name also hints at the breadth of texture that the wines from these vineyards tend to offer up, even when only Chardonnay is used. In the past, this wine contained up to 20 percent Pinot Noir, but over the years this has been steadily decreasing in favour of Chardonnay.
