2014 Larmandier Bernier 1er Cru 'Terre de Vertus' Blanc de Blancs

$218.00

Place: Champagne, FRA

Variety: Chardonnay

Farming: Organic

Terre de Vertus is from the chalky 1er Cru vineyard plots of Les Barillers and Les Faucherets, situated mid-slope in Vertus. These sites make arguably the most explicitly mineral wines of the village; wines that can recall the best of Le Mesnil (to the north) in their chalky raciness and drive.

This was fermented naturally and aged 60% in neutral barrique and 40% in large wooden Stockinger cask. Malolactic fermentation began spontaneously and the wines were left on their natural lees for nearly a year. After the second fermentation the wine aged in bottle on cork, and there was no dosage addition at disgorgement in order to respect the purity of the terroir.
