Brut non-vintage is always the expression of the House style and, as such, it is the signature champagne. Laurent-Perrier Brut’s style is defined by its very high proportion of Chardonnay which provides a natural purity, freshness and elegance. These essential characteristics, expressed in all our champagnes, are a good introduction to the spirit of Laurent-Perrier. The Laurent-Perrier Brut also benefits from ideal ageing in the cellars: three years minimum for a 75cl bottle, and four to five years for a magnum. Its balance and natural freshness are enhanced by a light dosage. After the dosage, the wines are kept in the cellar to rest for several months before shipment. TASTING NOTES APPEARANCE: Pale gold in colour with a steady flow of fine and persistent bubbles. NOSE: Delicate yet complex, fresh and well-balanced with hints of citrus and white fruits. TASTE: Well defined, subtly rounded with expressive flavours. The fruit progressively emerges to reveal a finely balanced champagne displaying great length on the finish. SERVING: Serve between 8°C and 10°C. The combination of freshness and purity of the Laurent-Perrier Brut has been a major factor in the success of champagne as an aperitif. Its citrus and white fruit notes — such as vine peach — and its remarkable balance supported by subtle bubbles make it the perfect companion for the finer moments in life. A true vin de plaisir. THE BLEND GRAPE VARIETIES: Chardonnay: 50% — which is a particularly high proportion, double the average in Champagne — Pinot Noir: 35 %, Pinot Meunier: 15 %. VINEYEARDS: The blend is made from more than 55 individual crus or villages, with an average cru rating of 94% on the échelle des crus and up to 20% of reserve wines are also used, thus ensuring perfect consistency in the style.
The Cuvée Rosé Laurent-Perrier was created in 1968 using bold, innovative ‘savoir-faire’ methods learned from production of still wines called ‘Coteaux Champenois.’ Perfected at each stage of its making, the Cuvée Rosé is now the benchmark in its category. Held in an elegant wine bottle inspired by King Henri IV, this rosé champagne has been widely acknowledged for its consistent high quality for more than 40 years. Laurent-Perrier’s technical facilities are dedicated to the making of the Cuvée Rosé. Grapes from carefully selected plots are then meticulously sorted and destemmed before going into the vats. Controlled maceration — lasting from 48 to 72 hours depending on the harvest — helps the extraction of color and the development of the full aromatic richness of the Pinot Noir. It is aged in the cellars for at least four years. TASTING NOTES APPEARANCE: Elegant, with color changing naturally from a pretty raspberry hint to salmon-pink. NOSE: Precise and very crisp. Wide range of small red fruits: strawberries, red currants, raspberries and black cherries. Its amazing freshness is the dominating note. TASTE: Intensely fruity flavors, clean, well-defined and slightly sharp, the wine then opens up to provide an impression of plunging into a basket of freshly picked red berries: strawberries, Morello cherries, black currants and raspberries. The wine is supple and rounded on the finish. SERVING: Serve at around 8°C and 10°C. The Cuvée Rosé Laurent-Perrier is a delicious apéritif. This cuvée, thanks to its aromatic character, allows various food and wine pairings. It matches well with raw fishes (marinated red mullets and tartare of tuna), grilled prawns, fine charcuterie (such as Italian prosciutto), duck, lamb and creamy cheeses such as Chaource. The Cuvée Rosé is also an extraordinary match for red fruit desserts. The more daring will try it with Asian — even Indian — cuisine. THE BLEND GRAPE VARIETIES: 100% Pinot Noir. VINEYARDS: Blended from 10 different ‘crus’ (or villages) situated mainly in the South and North areas of the Montagne de Reims— including the famous Côte de Bouzy – notably from the finest crus of Ambonnay, Bouzy, Louvois and Tours-sur-Marne.
