Description

The Latitude is a cuvée made from more clay rich sites in Vertus that naturally are riper/fleshier/broader in their palate presence, offering a wine of great charm and fruit driven appeal. The current disgorgement is from a 2017 base. It is plain terrific, once again, with the telltale house hallmark purity, and rings clear as a bell in its goal of expressing the broader, richer charms of Vertus. This is a perennial best buy in Blanc de Blancs, which many many of you noticed, coming back to clean me out……

“The NV Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Latitude 1er Cru is a fabulous introduction to the Larmandier-Bernier wines. It offers a compelling mix of Chardonnay brightness with the breadth and natural resonance that comes so easy from the clay-rich soils that are common in the southern edge of Vertus. Dried lemon peel, chamomile, mint, sage and almond nuances flesh out in this beautifully resonant, expansive Blanc de Blancs. This release is based on 2017, with 40% wines from a perpetual reserve that dates back to 2004. Dosage is 4 grams per liter. Disgorged: October, 2019.” 93 Antonio Galloni
