Region: Champagne, France
Color/Style: Sparkling White Wine
Previously known as "Tradition", a name that was chosen in the 1970’s by Pierre’s parents. The new name Latitude was selected since the wine is composed exclusively of Chardonnays originating from the same latitude: south of Vertus, an area historically planted to Pinot Noir. This is a generous terroir with a deep topsoil, resulting in a round, rich, Pinot-y style (despite it being 100% Chardonnay) coupled with the characteristic pureness of the Estate’s Champagnes. The base wine makes up approximately 70% of the blend and is fermented in a combination of large, old oak foudres and neutral Burgundian barrels. The remaining 30% is reserve wine from a perpetual reserve started in 2004 and kept in stainless steel tanks after the first year in oak. 2020 Base.
