This is a totally different experience to their 'Rosé de Saignée' - it's a much more layered, fleshy and complex wine. Extremely seductive, with waves of flavour (dark fruit, grilled nuts and pink salt), this is a stunning new cuvée from Larmandier-Bernier. 

Technical details: Disgorged June 2018. 2013 marks the first release of this new wine, which stems from the Larmandier's experience exploring the aging potential of their Rosé de Saignée.

Here, part of the Rosé de Saignée was fermented and raised on lees in barrel for 11 months, before it was blended with a parcel fermented and raised in Nomblot concrete. Following four years in bottle this new cuvée was disgorged in June 2018 with dosage of 3 grams per litre. 

If the Larmandier-Bernier family produced technical equipment instead of champagne they would make the best laser-guided tools. This best describes their level of accuracy and just getting it right.

“These wines from Pierre and Sophie Larmandier are exceptional in every way. Larmandier practices a non-interventionist philosophy in the vineyards with an emphasis on low yields. A similar approach is taken in the cellar, where the wines are fermented with natural yeasts and bottled with low or no dosage in order to exalt the qualities of the sites the estate works with. The Larmandier-Bernier Champagnes are some of the purest and most utterly engaging wines being made in the region today. I can’t recommend them highly enough.” Antonio Galloni, The Wine Advocate

It has the depth to go with strong flavoured dishes, from all kinds of game (e.g. pigeon and venison), strong fish dishes and even red meat.
