About this deal

With up to 55% Chardonnay and a minimum of four years aging in the cellars, La Cuvée is delicate yet complex with crisp notes of citrus fruit and white flowers, and great length on the finish. The timing of maceration is crucial and legend has it that the first Chef de Cave, Edouard Leclerc, slept by the tank to stop it just in time! Laurent-Perrier was the first House to offer the successive breakthrough Cuvées of Grand Siècle , Cuvée Rosé , Ultra Brut and Alexandra Rosé Millesimé. Distinguished by the chubby round hipped bottle, this rosé Champagne has become highly successful, created unusually from 100% Pinot Noir from the best vineyards, and using, for a few days only, the saignée method (contact with the red grape skins) rather than the addition of red wine.

We tasted some rich and generous vins clairs with Chef de Cave Michel Fauconnet and sampled previews of upcoming Vintage 2008 and future Grand Siècle NV. This gives it the highly expressive bouquet and delicious raspberry and wild cherry flavors that have made it a benchmark for rosé champagnes around the world. It is produced from 100% Pinot Noir with a controlled period of maceration to extract the gorgeous salmon-pink colour and the full aromatic richness of the variety. Treat your palate to a symphony of flavours, from the crispness of green apples to the richness of ripe peaches.The aromatic depth of the rosé pairs with marinated raw fish, grilled prawns, exotic dishes, Parma ham and red fruit desserts. the wine then spends an extra year in the cellar, ageing for a total of four years on the lees before release. With another war looking likely Eugenie sold the company in 1939 to Mary-Louise Lanson de Nonancourt. Recognised throughout the world since 1812, Laurent-Perrier abide by long-established traditions: respect for nature and wine and dedication to quality.

Today, with Bernard’s daughters Alexandra and Stéphanie on the Management Board, the House of Laurent-Perrier is one of the great success stories in Champagne and is the largest independent Champagne brand worldwide. Grape varietals: a majority of Chardonnay, over 50% Pinot Noir, between 30% and 35% rounded out with Meunier, between 10% and 15% + Reserve wines between 15% and 30%* to ensure perfect consistency in style. In the rolling vineyards of Champagne, where the art of winemaking is perfection, Laurent-Perrier stands as a symbol of excellence and innovation.

Laurent-Perrier Champagne is based on the art of blending: the blending of grape varieties, the blending of Crus and the blending of years.
