Les Terres des Buissons is a lieu-dit parcel of 100% chardonnay from pure chalk, in the Côte des Blancs Grand Cru village of Cramant, elegant, rich and mineral, with yellow fruit aromas and notes of acacia and balsam. Les Terres des Buissons is serious and developed, with an extremely complex nose, incredible balance, and an unforgettable finish. The 2014 is one of the greatest examples of artisan Champagne we have experienced, and it is the last vintage of Les Terres des Buissons from Waris-Larmandier, as they have lost the parcel to another family member.
The dynamic, young Waris-Larmandier family farms prime, old-vine vineyards of Grand Cru chardonnay in the Côte des Blancs, located in the villages of Chouilly, Cramant, Avize, Oger, and Le Mesnil-sur-Oger. Jean-Philippe Waris is supported by his brother Pierre-Louis, an architect, and his sister Inès, a designer and sculptor. Together with their mother, Marie-Hélène Larmandier, they form the “racines de trois” (the three roots) of Waris-Larmandier; each making their own contribution to the artistic vision of this young and dynamic Champagne house. Exceptional farming is the primary focus at Waris-Larmandier. Their vineyards are certified both organic (Ecocert) and biodynamic (Demeter), with their primary goal of producing transparent, terroir-focused wines.
Waris-Larmandier Champagnes are made in a long-aging style characterized by elegance and a superb balance of minerality and silkiness, with secondary fermentation producing pressure at 4.5 bar. This lower pressure, traditional to Avize, gives the wine a very fine and creamy mousse and delicate texture that is neither aggressive, nor overwhelming, yielding gastronomic Champagnes with great complexity and verve.
