About this deal

Their next great venture was Cuvee Rose, created in 1968, carefully selected Pinot Noir plots are sorted and destemmed before a period of maceration. The maceration, lasting from 48-72 hours depending on the harvest, helps the extraction of the colour and the development of the full aromatic richness of the Pinot Noir.

We met with Cellar Master Michel Fauconnet to visit Laurent-Perrier's renovated cellars and conduct a vertical tasting of Brut Vintage and Grand Siècle (all from magnum) alongside Jancis Robinson MW. An expressive, spice-accented bouquet evokes fresh raspberry, orange pith, white flowers and ginger, with a hint of rhubarb adding an earthy flourish. Though a replacement for Laurent Perrier's traditional Brut NV expression, it is far more than simply a new label, with an entirely new composition.Based in the heart of the Champagne region in Tours-sur-Marne, Laurent-Perrier has a pedigree for innovation, handcrafting elegant Champagnes using traditional, time-honoured methods. This grape variety brings Brut Sans Année from “ La Cuvée ” to the House’s Champagnes with the most prestigious Cuvées bringing the freshness, the elegance and purity that make the Laurent-Perrier style so distinct. Although originally founded in 1812, the name Champagne Laurent-Perrier was not conceived until 1964.

This stylish champagne is a blend of wines from more than 55 crus or villages and between 10 and 20% of reserve wines are used. One of Champagne's most important figures in the 20th century, he officially took over in 1948 after a three-year apprenticeship at the Houses of Delamotte and Lanson. The latter, widow and mother of four children, acquired the Domaine Laurent-Perrier and ran the business while two of her sons, Maurice and Bernard, joined the French Resistance.Elegant and fruity at the same time with a quick invitation from bright, pure cherryish notes and then filled out handsomely by whiffs of chalky soils and well-integrated, rich and uplifting yeast-driven scents, this wine manages to be both vigorous and layered at one and the same time. Laurent-Perrier la cuvee brut champagne magnum gift boxed is perfect for any special occasion or party! The lightness and elegance of Laurent-Perrier’s signature Champagne, La Cuvée, defines the House style. However, in 1968, Laurent-Perrier broke tradition and changed sparkling wine forever when they created their world-famous Rosé.

This technique gives it the highly expressive bouquet and fresh berry flavours that have made it a benchmark for rosé Champagnes. Laurent-Perrier produces a range of pioneering Champagnes and has a reputation for challenging conventional techniques whilst honouring traditional values. With this long time post disgorgement the champagne style really changes the colour goes quite copper orange, the fruits go that spectrum of dried fruits like plum, orange and raspberry with a soft creamy texture.La Cuvée is Laurent-Perrier’s signature champagne, defining the House style with its characteristic lightness, freshness and elegance. 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. Its bubbles are insistent, finely carved and add to the early sensations of lightness and energy yet also carry the wine long into a balanced, refined finish. Bernard observed that nature would never provide the perfect oenological year though the art of assemblage, LP could in fact create it.
