Expert Ratings: Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 93/100
"The Larmandier family has bottled the contents of a single 500-liter barrel as the 2017 Coteaux Champenois Cramant Nature, and the results are impressive. Opening in the glass with scents of pear, waxy citrus rind, fresh pastry, blanched almonds and vanilla pod, it's medium to full-bodied, satiny and layered, with fine concentration and an elegantly seamless profile, concluding with a saline finish." William Kelley
About the winery: Larmandier-Bernier numbers among the Côte de Blanc's—and Champagne's—finest estates. Based in Vertus, the Larmandier family farm organically and harvest late, vinifying the resulting wines in wood. The result is vinous, elegantly muscular Champagnes that are concentrated but precise. In a region that still produces far too many meager, brittle wines, Larmander-Bernier reminds us of the plenitude and texture of which great Champagne is capable.
As remarkable for their consistency as their quality, any wine that bears this family’s label is well worth seeking out.
