Champagne Larmandier-Bernier 1er Cru Longitude Blanc de Blancs NV
This is simply a superb Blanc de Blancs, and a prestige cuvée by any other name. It is a terrific food wine--match it with anything that you might pair with a Chablis, Riesling or any white from the Loire.
"Another lovely wine from Larmandier-Bernier, the 2017-base NV Extra-Brut Blanc de Blancs Premier Cru Longitude was disgorged in April 2020 with three grams per liter dosage. Mingling aromas of citrus oil, green apple and pear with hints of white flowers and fresh bread, it's medium to full-bodied, elegantly enveloping and precise, with a more mineral, chiseled profile than the Latitude bottling, reflecting its origins in optimally situated parcels in Vertus, Oger, Avize, Cramant. As I've written before, this is one of the finest non-vintage bottlings to be found in Champagne, and it comes warmly recommended." 93 points, William Kelley, The Wine Advocate
