Laurent-Perrier’s prestige cuvée is always non-vintage, a blend of top years. The latest bottling is so elegant, definitely maturing from bottle aging and older vintages in the blend, but still worthy of aging in itself. It is dry, in the L-P style, but has richness, an intense pink grapefruit character, hints of cilantro, the final acidity a great shaft of light.
Mature, with a touch of scrambled egg and burnt sulfur on the dry bouquet. This one runs lean and crisp, with green apple and a hint of lemon on the palate. That said, there’s still laudable depth of flavor and complexity. Overall the impression is largely of citrus. Imported by Laurent-Perrier.
A wonderful wine that has preserved its freshness while welcoming elements of toasty maturity. It is crisp, definitely on the dry side, with red currants, bright wild strawberries over the purest acidity. It’s sure to age over many years, but, if you must, can be drunk now.
It’s a pale wine, on the rose side of gold, a beautiful visual introduction to a stunning wine. The strawberry flavors are wrapped in a silvery texture, crisply dry, and despite the intensity of fruit, the wine seems weightless on the palate. It’s gorgeous now, but, amazingly, just a baby. It’s long-term future is assured. Twenty years from now, this will be heavenly.
This very structured wine is dry, in the Laurent-Perrier house style. Crunchy green apples are supported by richness and a complex texture. With nine years in the cellar, it has already gained some maturity, but needs aging.
The beautiful orange pink sunrise color sets the scene for a dry style of wine, very much in the Laurent-Perrier tradition. Flavors of crisp red apples, red berry fruits and white currants come together with an edge of toast. A great wine, and a real food Champagne.
Very pure, very fresh, this is the oldest label in the ultra brut category. It is almost shocking in its dryness with at the same time richness and concentration. Based on the 2008 vintage, a great one.
Fresh yet toasty, with more smoke and slyness than overt fruit. The palate is driven by apricot and orange rind, while the mouthfeel is succulent and secure, with ample smoothness. Grows on you even as it impresses from the start. Imported by Laurent-Perrier.
