Larmandier-Bernier Extra Brut les Chemins d'Avize 2009
This cuvée completes a trio of single-terroir Champagnes (the original two being Cramant VV and Terre de Vertus). In classic Larmandier-Bernier style, it is stunningly pure with exceptional clarity, succulence, an impressive mineral drive and the salinity of Avize chalk on the finish. It's easy to see why Pierre & Sophie elevated this wine to the top of their lineup. Disgorged January 2014.
