About The Wine
Pierre and Sophie Larmandier are crafting some of the finest Champagnes of the modern era.
They take a much more natural approach to their craft than most in the region, managing their 15 hectares in the south of Côte des Blancs biodynamically (highly unusual for Champagne) and opting for a more hands off approach in the cellar. Their ferments are wild and often long, they keep the dosage low across their range of cuveés, producing dry, mineral-charged wines with incredible drive and purity.
This is arguably there most famous single site cuveé.
The Terre de Vertus is taken from neighbouring plots, Les Barillers and Les Faucherets, around half way up the famed slopes of Vertus.
The main aim here is to present a feircely individual representation of the terroir. No dosage, wild ferment, natural malolactic fermentation, this is as pure as an expression of Champagne as you will find. It has 8 years on lees before disgorging.
It's one of the most thrilling and sought-after Champagne wines to hit Australian shores.
