Champagne Laurent Perrier
The House of Laurent-Perrier was founded in 1812 by André Michel Pierlot and took the name Vve Laurent-Perrier when Mathilde Emilie Perrier, the widow of Eugène Laurent, combined the two family names after she decided to expand the business. Eugénie Hortense Laurent, her daughter, inherited the House in 1925 and sold it to Marie-Louise Lanson de Nonancourt in 1939.
Region : Champagne
Appellation : Champagne
Grape Variety :
+ A majority of Chardonnay, over 50%
+ Pinot Noir, between 30% and 35%
+ Rounded out with Pinot Meunier, between 10% and 15%
+ Reserve wines between 15% and 30%* to ensure perfect consistency in style.
Type : Sparkling
Winemaking : For blending, only the musts of the Cuvée are used, so only 80% of the grape juice is extracted from pressing. “La Cuvée” benefits from an ideal ageing of around 4 years in the cellar. Its balance and freshness are enhanced by a light dosage.
Tasting notes: A pale gold colour. Fine bubbles feed a persistent mousse. A delicate nose with hints of fresh citrus and white flowers. The wine’s complexity is expressed in successive notes such as those of vine peach and white fruit. A perfect balance between freshness and delicacy with fruity flavours very present on the finish.
Serving temperature : 8-10 °C
Food pairing :This fresh and pure wine is perfect as an aperitif. Its citrus and white fruit notes and its remarkable balance, supported by a subtle effervescence, make it an ideal accompaniment to poultry and the finest fish.
