Laurent-Perrier Brut Champagne (375ml)
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.
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. Best from 2012 through 2016.
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
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.
Very classic. Tight and citrussy, with good length. Crisp and defined. Cut on Savile Row.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
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.
This non-vintage Champagne is composed of 45% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Noir and 15% Meunier. It is a very toasty style that is not heavy.
