Laurent-Perrier Brut Champagne (187ml) (Elsewhere $16)

SKU #1350788 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The Laurent-Perrier NV Brut is a blend of 50% Chardonnay, 35% Pinot Noir and 15% Meunier, and is based on 2009 plus 15-30% reserve wines from two or three vintages. Citrus colored, this signature LP has a refined, fresh and elegant nose with brioche and delicate citrus flavors. Lean, refined and elegant on the palate, this is a dry and silky textured, vivacious, and perfectly fresh and balanced aperitif Champagne. It does not have the opinion-dividing thrill and tension of the Ultra Brut, but will probably find more friends. (SR)  (6/2016)

90 points Wine Spectator

 A harmonious Champagne, with a vibrant backbone of acidity and a well-knit mix of poached pear, lemon preserves, smoke and toast. Very accessible. Drink now through 2018. (AN)  (10/2016)

How is this crowd-pleasing Grand Marque release less than eight bucks?! Perfect for picnics, as party favors,or anytime you don't want to commit to a bigger bottle, Laurent-Perrier's delicious original Brut will always hold a place in my heart. This is an easygoing Champagne whose supreme drinkability almost outshines its incredible quality. But make no mistake: the pedigree is there. Aged nearly four years on the lees and composed of a whopping 50% Chardonnay, 35% Pinot Noir, and 15% Pinot Meunier, most of which is sourced from Grand Cru vineyards, this is a layered, elegant Champagne that quietly wows. Apple and pear fruit soars up front, with rich texture through the palate and the Grand Marque’s hallmark crisp finish. Definitely will not last.

Always one of my favorite of the Grand Marques, the Laurent Perrier nonvintage brut is rich, focused, bright and poised all at once. It has flavors of Meyer lemon, nectarine, and honeyed pear with a hint of smoke, fully integrated leesy toast and a taut acid line that makes the finish last for ages. This champagne carries the prestige of being a Grand Marque without the high cost. It’s definitely a “best buy.”

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
Sub-Region:

Champagne

- The French region of Champagne (comprised of the towns of Rheims, Epernay, and Ay) was the first region in the world to make sparkling wine in any quantity. Today, the name of the region is synonymous with the finest of all sparkling wines, and winemaking traditions of Champagne have become role models for sparkling wine producers, worldwide. Surprisingly, the region of Champagne is now responsible for only one bottle in 12 of all sparkling wine produced. Styles of champagne range from the basic brut (often blends of several vintages), single vintage champagnes, and rose.
