Join us for what shall be a superb evening on Bastille Day as we taste the exceptional and – increasingly rare – range of champagnes from one of our favourite producers, Larmandier-Bernier

Hosted by Nick Mercer from importer Bibendum Wine Co., along with insight via video from Arthur Larmandier in Champagne, this will be a unique insight into the current range and what makes these champagnes so mouthwateringly unique.

Like other benchmark growers, this is a producer that keeps evolving and reaching ever-greater heights. The wines still have the energy and intense minerality they have always offered, and now there is even more depth, layers and complexity. In part this is due to an increase in the lees ageing cycle, which the Larmandiers now deem essential to the expression of their wines. On top of this these wines now enjoy a longer ageing prior to release and the new, underground maturation cellar now grants Pierre and Sophie Larmandier this opportunity.

“Few growers’ ranges in Champagne are as consistently outstanding as that of Larmandier-Bernier”
– The New France

Antonio Galloni

“Pierre and Sophie Larmandier craft dramatic, vinous wines of real personality and class. Sustainable farming practices, indigenous fermentations and aging in cask are some of the cornerstones of an approach that yields distinctly potent, textured wines full of character.”
