Laurent-Perrier Brut Champagne (375ml)
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Deep aromas of citrus skin, smoke, minerals and spices, with a saline complexity. Ripe on entry, then dense and concentrated but pliant and very smooth. Leads with its strong, clear fruit tones of orange sorbet and lemon. Very ripe, accessible, well-balanced Champagne with excellent lingering fruit. In my tastings in recent years, this has consistently been among the best non-vintage brut bottlings from the major Champagne houses.
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.
Wine & Spirits
A plump Champagne with a little tension to its broad, pleasantly sweet flavors, this is a soft wine to chill for aperitifs.
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. From Jancis Robinson: "At the special price offered by Roberson, this may be the best-value grande marque champagne on the UK market. The current cuvée is particularly fresh and zesty. Racy and well balanced." (04/2012)
