Larmandier Bernier Champagne Terre De Vertus 1er Cru Non Dose 2012

"Drawing life from the shallow chalk along the road to Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, this is a blanc de blancs that expresses more soil than sky, in a palate more about mouth-embracing, intensely textured minerality than fruit.

Product Description

"Drawing life from the shallow chalk along the road to Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, this is a blanc de blancs that expresses more soil than sky, in a palate more about mouth-embracing, intensely textured minerality than fruit. Crystalline freshness of lemon blossom, pure grapefruit, white peach and even lime is set against a background of subtle complexity of fig and mixed spice from oak fermentation. Perfectly balanced without a drop of dosage, its vibrant acidity, ever present chalk minerality and profound persistence confirm this magnificent vintage as one of the Larmandier's greatest of the modern era, with a tremendous future before it." 
96 Points Tyson Stelzer, The Champagne Guide 2012-2013

"Whichever Champagne guide you consult, you will find nothing less than glowing reports on this flawlessly run avant-gardiste Estate. It is one the true pioneers of the Great Grower movement in Champagne. Biodynamic farming and hands-off winemaking lie at the heart of Pierre and Sophie Larmandier's philosophy. Hence, all the wines here specialise in the kind of vineyard resonance and character that is most rare in Champagne. Terre de Vertus is one of three single terroir wines produced here and certainly the most famous. It is 100 per cent Chardonnay coming from the 1er Cru vineyard plots of Les Barillers and Les Faucherets situated mid-slope in Vertus. These neighbouring sites make the most explicitly mineral wines of the village, wines that can recall the best wines of Mesnil (to the north) in their raciness and drive. Although the 2007 is now drinking beautifully, 2008 revels in the pedigree of this great vintage. It is wonderful now - a dance of citrus fruits, florals, minerals and earth - but will be even better with a year or two in bottle. Wonderfully fresh and zesty, with great length and drive, this is another stunning success from this outstanding, benchmark grower." - Importers Notes
