This is lovely, the aromas and flavors run long into the finish with notes of light butter biscuits, subtle cooked apples and peaches. It's full yet balanced and long. Lovely texture. Lots of flavor and polished textured bubbles. The base in the current release is 2016 vintage. 50% chardonnay, 35% pinot noir and 15% pinot meunier. Disgorged in December 2022. Drink now.

A crisp Champagne, with a fine, lacy mousse and a pretty, finely meshed range of flavors, showing hints of crushed cherry, toasted almond, fleur de sel and pink grapefruit pith, followed by a smoke-tinged finish.

The NV Champagne La Cuvée Brut is aged for 4 years and sees 8 grams per liter dosage. The nose is very pretty and elegant, with floral aromas of brioche and sweet orchard fruits. Fresh with apricot, it is expressive of its lovely Chardonnay character. The palate is soft and approachable, and in line with the nose. This is a great aperitif style to begin with. Drink now or over the following 10 years. Best after 2022.

As an indication of its complexity, this Champagne is a blend of more than 100 different wines. This non vintage cuvée is rich, with a hint of toast contrasting with the wine’s mineral texture. White fruits give a vivid character to the aftertaste.
Sourced from over 100 Grand Cru villages, this well balanced and delicious Champagne is appley and creamy, with richer apricot and brioche towards the finish giving a soft impression.
‘La Cuvée’ is a champagne of great finesse and a beautiful freshness obtained after a long ageing process in our 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.
At Laurent-Perrier, passion guides the hand. An unrivalled creator of style and emotions since 1812, Laurent-Perrier suits every occasion and offers a unique experience for all senses through its innovative and comprehensive range of champagnes.
Laurent-Perrier shares an epicurean vision with champagne lovers all over the world and has no higher ambition than to demonstrate an elegant Art de Vivre à la française, charged with emotion.
In 1881, when Cellar Master Eugène Laurent inherited the Alphonse Pierlot Champagne House, he provided it with the essential foundations required to produce great champagnes, namely the houses and land to create a fully-fledged estate. He purchased vines in the very best terroirs of Bouzy, Tours-sur-Marne, and Ambonnay, excavated 800 metres of cellars, and set up a tasting laboratory.
That is how the Domaine Laurent-Perrier (the Estate) was anchored in Tours-sur-Marne. This picturesque village is ideally situated at the crossroads of the three main wine growing areas of the Marne département: the Montagne de Reims, the Vallée de la Marne and the Côte des Blancs. It is also part of the 17 Champagne villages ranking in the prestigious ‘Grand Cru’ area.
