The 9998 Larmandier-Bernier Longitude Premier Cru Extra Brut is an exceptional Champagne blend that embodies elegance and sophistication. With its pristine white color, this wine immediately captivates the eye and sets the stage for a truly remarkable tasting experience.

On the nose, the aromas are striking and evocative. Crushed chalk and zesty lemon notes take center stage, their purity and intensity creating an enticing bouquet. These aromas are complemented by delicate hints of pastry cream, citrus pith, and crisp orchard fruits, adding depth and complexity to the wine.

Upon the first sip, the palate is greeted with a smooth and crisp array of vibrant, dry lemon flavors. The freshness and precision of these flavors are truly outstanding, leaving a lasting impression on the senses. The wine's texture is impeccably smooth, with a refined mousse that enhances the overall drinking experience.

The NV Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Longitude 1er Cru is a Champagne that sizzles with tension and energy. The vineyards in the villages of Vertus, Cramant, and Oger, with their chalk and limestone soils, contribute to the wine's vibrancy and drive. Citrus notes, yellow flowers, spice, and baked apple tart add aromatic nuance, further enhancing the wine's complexity.

This wine has garnered high praise from esteemed wine critics. James Suckling awarded it an impressive score of 93, noting the wine's pure and dry qualities. The review from Vinous, with a score of 94, highlights the wine's pure drive and texture, describing it as a fabulous showing.
