Larmandier-Bernier 2006 Vieilles Vignes de Cramant Grand Cru Chardonnay (Champagne)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $90
This wine is sourced from two parcels, one planted in the 1930s and the other in the 1950s. The low dosage is possible because of the concentration and ripeness of the fruit, resulting in a sophisticated, balanced and rich wine with a lemon zest flavor, a tight, mineral texture, and a crisp finish.  — R.V.  (5/1/2013)

Larmandier-Bernier NV Vieilles Vignes de Cramant Grand Cru Chardonnay (Champagne)

  1. $80
While the Larmandier’s main vineyard is in Vertus, they also have a parcel in the grand cru vineyard of Cramant. It is full of beautifully ripe fruit, beginning to round out as it ages. Green fruits and white pears, as well as yeast are still dominant; drink 2010.  — R.V.  (12/31/2007)

Larmandier-Bernier 2007 Terre de Vertus Premier Cru Sparkling (Champagne)

A full, rich, ripe wine with a contrasting distinct mineral character. Acidity, a fresh lemongrass flavor and a tight texture gives this wine complexity. There is a touch of toastiness, lending a notion of balance between total freshness and maturity.  — R.V.  (5/1/2013)

Larmandier-Bernier NV Terre de Vertus Premier Cru Chardonnay (Champagne)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $62
Although this is marked nonvintage, the fruit all comes from 2004. It is made from old vines, giving richness and ripeness, and a generous white fruit character which fully compensates for the very dry nature of the wine. It’s delicious, a complex wine of intense character.  — R.V.  (12/31/2007)

Larmandier-Bernier NV Terre de Vertus Premier Cru Brut Chardonnay (Champagne)

  1. $55
A 100% Chardonnay blanc de blancs that is presented without any dosage to soften the acidity. Yet it doesn’t seem to matter, because this Champagne is deliciously ripe, packed with mature fruit flavors, a touch of almonds to go with the white currant tastes and a layer of toastiness. Imported by Michael Skurnik Wines.  — R.V.  (12/1/2005)

Larmandier-Bernier NV Blanc de Blancs Brut Chardonnay (Champagne)

  • Cellar Selection
Very mineral in style, a blend of Chardonnay from Avize, Cramant and Vertus. Crisp, dry, tight and packed with citrus. It’s an impressively mineral wine, bringing out all the character of the chalk soil of Champagne’s Côte des Blancs.  — R.V.  (5/1/2013)

Larmandier-Bernier NV Latitude Extra Brut Chardonnay (Champagne)

Although it’s not indicated on the label, this is a Blanc de Blancs from Chardonnay. It is warm and ripe, with a soft texture allied to fresh acidity. Orange and lemon zest give a great lift to this rounded wine.  — R.V.  (5/1/2013)

Larmandier-Bernier 2002 Vieille Vigne de Cramant Chardonnay (Champagne)

  1. $70
This is certainly Chardonnay, full of green apple and white fruit creaminess that is still suspended in acidity and needs time to soften and open. Lovely flavors of spiced pears give the wine a great future.  — R.V.  (11/1/2006)
