Super Champagne

Larmandier-Bernier Longitude Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs NV, Champagne, AUD $100

The depth and richness of this Champagne are exceptional, its ripe fruit aromas augmented by bready lees-matured complexities. Deep and mouth-filling yet lively, fresh and linear. Just 4 grams/litre dosage, so dry. Great line and length: a vivid, joyous wine. (Cork)
