Laurent-Perrier Brut Champagne
Laurent-Perrier’s dry style is reflected in this crisp, elegant and fine Champagne. The character is mineral, taut, with a great burst of citrus and white fruit acidity. The ensemble creates a delicious food-friendly wine.

Vivid yellow. Fresh pear and yellow apple on the perfumed nose and in the mouth. In a chewy, expansive style, but with good clarity and thrust. The pear note repeats on the persistent finish, which leaves notes of toasty lees, iodine and honeysuckle behind.
Steering a little more toward yeast than it does to fruitiness, but never giving up to dryness, this straightforward Brut shows a bit of brioche sweetness set atop a slightly citrusy note and more subtle suggestions of minerals. It is continuous without being all that effusive, and only a minor touch of late-arriving coarseness holds it back from higher marks.
Very classic. Tight and citrussy, with good length. Crisp and defined. Cut on Savile Row.

Laurent Perrier’s NV Brut is an attractive wine laced with ripe pears, apricots, dried flowers and spices. The soft, caressing style is best enjoyed over the next few years.
Grainy pear, spring blossom and almond notes lead the way in this balanced version. Open-knit and accessible, with a fresh, moderate finish. Drink now. (Web-2013)
This non-vintage Champagne is typically composed of about 45% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Noir and 15% Meunier. It is a very toasty style that is not heavy.
