NV Champagne Larmandier-Bernier 1er Cru Longitude Blanc de Blancs
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.
The 'Longitude' is a non-vintage cuveé comprised of vineyards located in Cramant, Avize, Oger, and Vertus. The hungry, shallow soils in these vineyards produce a style of Blanc de Blacs that is long, fine and mineral-driven.
If 'Latitude' is about breadth of flavour and richness, 'Longitude' is about precision and extension of flavour. It's outstanding value in the context of high quality grower Champagne.Read more about NV Champagne Larmandier-Bernier 1er Cru Longitude Blanc de Blancs
NV Champagne Chartogne-Taillet Cuvee Sainte Anne Brut
Alexandre Chartogne is regarded amongst the top ranks of Champagne's younger generation of artisanal grower producers.
Inspired by his time with the legendary Anselme Selosse (whom he describes as his, "Wine Father"), Alexandre has experimented with multiple modes of production during his tenure in control of his family's plantings just north of Reims. Since 2006, he has managed his sites on the southern slopes of the Massif de Saint-Thierry with organic practices (uncertified), and believes that in the traditions of his ancestors lies plenty of wisdom. He now makes the wines as they did - with the wines aged in barrel and handled with care.
Decanter dubbed him, "One of Champagne’s brightest rising stars." His wines are richly flavoured yet precise and offer a clear reflection of the terroir he farms.
The Sainte Anne is his excellent value NV cuveé. It is comprised of predominantly Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from the family vineyards dotted around Merfy. Consistently, this offers great depth and character for a Champagne of this price point. Great buying if you're exploring the next generation producers of Champagne.Read more about NV Champagne Chartogne-Taillet Cuvee Sainte Anne Brut
