Larmandier-Bernier, Longitude Blanc de Blancs 1erCru Extra Brut, Champagne NV
ME: Lovely classy green-gold colour shouts Chardonnay. Minerals, chalk, a hint of spices, and fine, fine tension in the mouth. Moreish and complete,a fine long wine. SF: Lively and energetic. The palate is spicy and firm with a soft white pepper backdrop. An accessible and ripe style, fresh and poised at the same time. TH: Slightly closed nose with grapefruit. Prettyhigh-pitched lemon pith notes coming through. It’s a little uncompromising and hard for general champagne drinkers maybe, but this is a winner forthose who like it honed, dry and persistent.
