NV Laurent Perrier La Cuvee
A champagne of great finesse and a beautiful freshness obtained after a long ageing process in Laurent-Perrier cellars. Laurent-Perrier’s style and personality are defined by its very high proportion of Chardonnay.
Purity, freshness and elegance – essential characteristics, expressed in this champagne – are a good introduction to the spirit of the House.
Pale straw coloured with small streaming bubbles opens up with a floral bouquet with hints of Meyer lemon, lime and macadamia nuts. Light bodied, bright and alive and the palate. The flavour profile is a mineral infused lime with notes of bread, mild grapefruit and a hint of golden delicious apple. It closes with a nice extended dry finish.
Laurent Perrier is one of the world’s famous champagne houses, most well-known for their best-selling and pioneering saignee Rosé. Laurent Perrier champagne is fresh and elegant, with Chardonnay dominating, and almost no use of Pinot Meunier. In 2017, Laurent Perrier made the bold move to change their house champagne, replacing their NV Brut with a new style, “La Cuvee”. While still faithful to the classic Laurent Perrier house style, “La Cuvee” is noticeably fresher, purer and more complex.
