This Blanc de Blancs was historically labelled Vieille Vigne de Cramant. Nothing has changed save for the name, which is now inspired by the vineyard where the majority of grapes are sourced, Bourron du Levant (planted in 1960). The balance comes from a 0.5-hectare holding in the neighbouring terroir of Le Fond du Bâteau (with 75-year-old vines).
The winemaking across each of Larmandier’s single-terroir wines is similar; here it is natural fermentation and malo, 12 months in large Stockinger barrels and no filtration. This cuvée, however, spends at least seven years in bottle on lees (nearly nine years for the 2012). This release was disgorged with only two grams per litre dosage.
