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.
Grape varieties: Chardonnay 50% – which is a particularly high proportion, double the average in Champagne – Pinot Noir 35 %, Pinot Meunier 15 %
Crus: 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 Laurent-Perrier Brut 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.
Appearance: Pale gold in colour with a steady flow of fine and persistent bubbles.
Aroma: 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.
