Exceptionally long and runs with so much energy. Beautiful.

About The Gift

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.

SHIPPING: Gifts ship in a durable external shipper that will ensure your gift is delivered in pristine condition, free from Shipping labels or marks during the delivery process.

Additional Info

From The Producer

2015 base with 35-40% reserve wines going back to 2004, disgorged in March 2019. The name here refers to the 'vertical' nature of the geographic locations of the vineyards as well as the style of wine that results from the very chalky soils of these sites i.e., a more linear, mineral style of wine. To be specific, the vineyards are located in Cramant, Avize, Oger, and Vertus (north of the village). While Latitude is expansive across the palate, Longitude is all about minerality, line and raciness. This is again 100% Côte des Blancs Chardonnay, yet the vineyards from which it is drawn have top soils that are much thinner and the vine's roots plunge straight into the chalky bedrock. Note: review below refers to the 2014 base.

Blend : Chardonnay (100%)
ABV : 12.50%
Closure : Cork

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"Scents of just ripe stone fruit, talc, faint honey and toast, a light caramel note too, all adding up to quite subtle and pretty. Creaminess in texture with very fine bead, vivacious and fresh-tasting with lovely salty-chalky feel very present through the wine and to the powdery, lightly puckering finish. Vinous in a way, gently savoury throughout, exceptionally long and runs with so much energy. Beautiful." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

FaQs

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.

Can I special order a wine you do not sell? If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
