Laurent Perrier Brut La Cuvee
While Laurent–Perrier is a 200-year-old company, its story is really one of a modern renaissance that dates from 1948 when upon his return from WW2, a former French Resistance fighter named Bernard de Nonacourt took over running the struggling champagne house purchased by his mother Madame Louise Lanson de Nonanacourt in 1939. No slave to tradition, Bernard began challenging closely held conventions to redefine how champagne was produced and consumed.
The wine comes from the purest grape juice and it alone allows Laurent-Perrier to craft 'La Cuvée', a champagne of great finesse and a beautiful freshness obtained after a long ageing process in our cellars.
Pale gold in color. 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 like vine peach and white fruits notes. A perfect balance between freshness and delicacy with fruity flavors very present on the finish.
This fresh and pure wine is perfect for an apéritif. Its citrus and white fruits notes and its remarkable balance supported by a subtle effervescence, make it an ideal accompaniment to poultry and the finest fish.

The brioche and cooked-apple and cream character really comes through here. Full-bodied and round with fine bubbles. Flavorful and intense. Vivid, bread-dough finish. This is four years on lees. 55% chardonnay and the rest pinot.
Wine Advocate-Champagne, France "...Citrus colored, this signature LP has a refined, fresh and elegant nose with brioche and delicate citrus flavors. Lean, refined and elegant on the palate, this is a dry and silky textured, vivacious, and perfectly fresh and balanced aperitif Champagne..."
Wine Spectator, 91 Points
Refined, with a sweet, smoky undercurrent to the flavors of glazed pear, candied lemon zest and golden raisin, with a hint of marzipan. Racy acidity frames, but doesn't dominate, the wine, with a spicy note lingering on the finish.
Over 50% Chardonnay, over 30% Pinot Noir, rounded out with Meunier, between 10 and 20%
