Larmandier-Bernier, Champagne Terre de Vertus Non-Dosé 1er Cru 2014

$90.00 Excl. tax

Plenty of energy and character, candied citrus, crushed rocks, slate and a slight touch of classic reduction adds character.

The non-dosage vintage bottling of Terre de Vertus is always a vintage-dated bottling and is produced from two top vineyards in the village of Vertus: Les Barillers and Les Faucherets, which are located in the heart of the Vertus vignoble, mid-slope on the rolling hills of the village. The wine undergoes its alcoholic and malolactic fermentations in old oak casks, rather than stainless steel, and is generally aged a minimum of four years in the cellar prior to disgorgement and release. It is universally considered one of the most profound non-dosage bottlings produced in all of Champagne and ages brilliantly.

VINOUS 92
The 2013 Brut Nature Blanc de Blancs Terre de Vertus 1er Cru is bright, tightly wound and focused, all qualities that are further brought out by the non-dosé style. There is plenty of energy and character, but in tasting, the 2013 comes across as a bit clenched and austere. I would give it a year or two to see if a bit more richness develops in bottle. Candied citrus, crushed rocks, slate and a slight touch of classic reduction adds character. The Terre de Vertus is a blend from the Les Barillers and Les Faucherets fermented 60% in neutral barrique and 40% in foudre, and then aged on the cork. No dosage. Disgorged: September, 2018.
