Disgorged December 2021. The Larmandier family vinify fruit from two tiny plots from at the heart of Avize (Chemin de Plivot planted in 1955, and Chemin de Flavigny planted in 1960) for this cuvée. Both are highly chalky parcels with very little topsoil, and both lie on the lower slopes of Avize (not far from Agrapart and Selosse’s La Fosse vineyard).

Expert review

The 2014 Extra-Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Les Chemins d'Avize continues to show brilliantly, unfurling in the glass with aromas of citrus oil, freshly baked bread, white flowers, fresh mint, pastry cream and blanched almonds. Full-bodied, layered and vinous, it's chiseled and concentrated, with racy acids, chalky structure and a long, saline finish. This is a terrific bottle that exemplifies the Larmandier-Bernier style.

Wine Advocate

The Grape

Blanc de Blancs

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.
