Description

A brand new release of their fantastic 1er cru, a bottling that captures the depth and quality of their work in a very serious vein, yet not quite as expensive as their Grand crus. The 2014 vintage is a classically balanced one, more on precision and moderation than any dominating ripeness or acidity. This is regularly an absolutely gorgeous, high toned, chalky, mouthwatering 1er cru Blanc de Blancs at its best, to my taste…..Based on the repeat order feedback i’ve gotten from you guys, quickly cleaning out my stock with every vintage that I bring in, clearly you agree……

“Disgorged in 2018 with minimal dosage, the 2013 Brut Nature Blanc de Blancs Premier Cru Terre de Vertus unfurls with notes of lemon oil, oyster shell, pastry cream and crisp green apple that gains in definition and purity with time in the glass. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, with a pinpoint mousse, lovely venosity, fine depth at the core and a mouthwateringly saline, chalky and decidedly dry finish. As usual, this is a classy and distinctive bottling from Larmandier-Bernier.” 94 William Kelly of Parker’s Wine Advocate for the 2013, NOT THE 2014 OFFERED HERE
