“The Larmandier-Bernier Champagnes are some of the purest and most utterly engaging wines being made in the region today. I can’t recommend them highly enough” – Antonio Galloni
“Larmandier-Bernier exemplifies the level of purity and mineral focus that can be drawn out of primarily premier cru terroir with sufficient care and attention. These exceedingly fine wines rightfully rank high amongst the finest of Champagnes grower producer” – Tyson Stelzer, The Champagne Guide
Champagne Larmandier-Bernier was created in 1971 by Philippe Larmandier (grandson of Jules Larmandier) and his wife Elisabeth Bernier (owner of vineyards in Vertus). The estate covers approximately 15 hectares, spread over the most beautiful terroirs of the Cote des Blancs, Vertus classified Premier Cru and Cramant, Chouilly, Oger & Avize, classified Grand Crus.
The vineyards are biodynamically worked and the average age of the vines is 33 years. All of their champagnes are the purest expressions of Chardonnay. The yields are kept very low. The resulting wines are wonderful expressions of their origins, fine and delicate, yet with a mineral intensity that keeps you coming back, sip after sip.
