Guy Larmandier Blanc De Blancs Brut Grand Cru NV Product #25835 (In Stock)
Guy Larmandier Blanc De Blancs Brut Grand Cru  NV Guy Larmandier Blanc De Blancs Brut Grand Cru  NV

We're self-admitted freaks for bubbles around here, but when it comes to true Champagne, we're a little picky.  It's not cheap, and we won't bring something new in unless it really wows us.  This wowed us.
Guy Larmandier is a family-owned domaine, with vineyards in the Cote des Blancs, one of the most prestigious regions of Champagne.  This Grand Cru bottling is made from 100% Chardonnay from the Grand Cru village of Cramant. It's the kind of handmade grower Champagne we are thrilled to be able to sell - and drink!

At first sniff, this smells like the skin of a really good, juicy pear.  As the bubbles dissipate a bit, aromas of white flowers and brioche emerge. There's a hint of roasted hazelnuts as well. Despite its minimum 36 months of aging, it's crisp and refreshing on the palate, with flavors of pear, a touch of lemon curd, and a beautiful chalky minerality. The flavors are sophisticated, but never austere. This would, of course, be a no-brainer for anniversaries and New Years' Eve, but sometimes a top-quality Champagne's sparkle and delicate layers are best appreciated on a humdrum Tuesday with no distractions.  Pop this open on movie night with a much smaller guest list and feel like you just spent a million bucks.
