Larmande family and Bernier are its long history in Champagne since the French Revolution. Into one united them in 1971, the marriage of Philip and Elizabeth Larmande Bernier. Today, the rich family tradition continues Pierre and Sophie, who own 15 hectares of vineyards in the Côte de Blancs. Pierre Larmande, to the management of the economy in 1988, belonged to the idea of switching to organic first, and then to fully biodynamic viticulture, produce the best crops in each vintage and produce world-class wines that convey the unique terroir of Côte de Blancs. In the vineyards Larmande Bern grown 85% Chardonnay and 15% Pinot Noir, the average age of the vines is 35 years. The farm is supported by the conservative practice of low yields, even by the standards of Champagne, an average of 50 hectoliters per hectare, and the classical approach to the production of wines - the use of natural yeasts, long slow fermentation, the use of steel vats and large oak barrels from old wood, low dozazh, sometimes and non-existent. Each Cru vinified separately. That is why wine Larmande-Bernier distinguished by their texture purity mineral energy, impeccable balance, great potential and beautiful expression of terroir.
