Located on the Côte des Blancs terroir, the Larmandier-Bernier Champagne House has been cultivating vines for over 8 generations. Since 1988, Pierre Larmandier has been at the head of the 16-hectare family estate with the ambition of producing exceptional vintages that authentically express the purity of the Champagne terroirs.
The choice to eliminate chemical products and to practice ploughing, use indigenous yeasts and carry out long ageing on lees in casks and wooden barrels confers to Larmandier-Bernier wines a rare and unique minerality and expression of terroir.
Latitude Extra-Brut Blanc de Blancs from Larmandier Bernier stems from vines aged on average 35 years old, which have been cultivated for more than 20 years on biodynamic practices and with the utmost respect for the Champagne terroir. This wine is historically called "Tradition."
