Disgorged March 2021. This Blanc de Blancs was historically labelled Vieille Vigne de Cramant. Nothing has changed save for the name, which is now inspired by the vineyard where the majority of the grapes are sourced, Bourron du Levant (planted in 1960). The balance comes from a 0.5-hectare holding in the neighbouring terroir of Le Fond du Bâteau (with 75-year-old vines).

The deep root system of the old vines combines with the terroir to bring a wine of glowing density and opulence. It offers a fascinating, concentrated and stone-fruited contrast to the other Larmandier cuvées. It remains a super-mineral wine, but here there is more flesh, more weight and more body.

The 2012 Extra-Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Vieille Vigne du Levant delivers a complex bouquet of orange oil and pear mingled with notions of freshly baked bread, white flowers, marzipan and beeswax, it's full-bodied, layered and multidimensional, with terrific concentration, racy acids and chalky structure. Powerful and precise, it concludes with a long, mineral finish.
French for “white of whites”, Blanc de Blancs is a sparkling wine made entirely from Chardonnay grapes. Made famous in Champagne, these wines have an incredible purity and linearity about them and express with intense lemon and apple-like fruit flavours, usually with an underlying seam of minerality and precise acidity.
