Previously, this cuvée was called "Tradition", a name that was chosen in the 1970s by Pierres parents. The new name Latitude was selected since the wine is composed exclusively of Chardonnays originating from the same latitude: the south of Vertus, where Pinot noir was historically planted. This is a generous terroir resulting in a round, rich, charming style, which still retains the characteristic pureness of the estates Champagnes. Pierre bielieves the wine possesses "pinot-like" characteristics such as red fruit flavors and bredth on the palate -- despite it being 100% Chardonnay -- which he attributes to this unique terroir. Disgorged September 2012, 4 grams dosage.

Although it's not indicated on the label, this is a Blanc de Blancs from Chardonnay. It is warm and ripe, with a soft texture allied to fresh acidity. Orange and lemon zest give a great lift to this rounded wine.
