The Chardonnay champagnes from the barren, white chalk soil of the Côtes des Blancs stand for unique brilliance, clearly defined structure and stimulating freshness. Over 95% of the area under cultivation is planted with this grape variety, almost all wines are vinified as Blanc de Blancs.
The Larmandier family has been growing grapes here since the 18th century and now cultivates 17 plots in different parishes of this famous area.
The family winery has been one of the best in the entire area since the takeover of Sophie and Pierre in 1988 and the associated organic conversion to biodynamic farming methods (since 1999!).
They have been supported by their son Arthur since 2017 - in-depth knowledge and many years of experience are thus supplemented with new ideas and insights.
The dosage is deliberately kept low so as not to hide the expressive structure of the champagne, almost everything is grown in large wood (they work closely with the renowned Stockinger cooperage from Ybbs, Austria) and always fermented spontaneously. There is neither filtration nor fining, great importance is attached to healthy vineyards, perfectly ripened, healthy grapes and manual work.
All this leads to the fact that the champagnes of the three belong to the flagship of the area when it comes to cleanliness, character and highest quality.
