Larmandier-Bernier 1er cru terre de vertus

92 points

Champagne, France. 12.5%

Non dosage wines have appeared to me to be more miss than hit, but this non-dosage blanc de blanc really hits the mark in a vinous savoury mineral style.  Aromas of rocks – really.  Not a pretty Champagne, but not trying to be.  Nor big and masculine.  This really is different, highly successful – though I in no way am suggesting that other houses try to go for this style.

Very impressive bubbles that lasted to the last glass even when consumed over two days.
