 Smoke and mineral notes drive this well-knit and creamy version, which is lively, layered with flavors of black currant, peach fruit, lemon curd and spice. Drink now through 2025. (Web Only-2015) (AN)

 Relatively light impact but everything is well balanced. Very neat. Absolutely correct without being in any way a standout. Impressive impact on the finish.  (3/2015)

While the 2007 growing season brought some stress, the 2006 season allowed the winemakers to put their feet up. An almost effortless growing season with plenty of sunshine and minimum rain. This vintage is more ripe and fruit forward than some of the other LP's in our line up. Filled with notes of yellow pears the wine relaxes on your palate before a slight lift of citrus pops open on the finish.

For those who enjoy a more decadently-styled Champagne, 2006 is your vintage. This Grand Cru offering from Laurent Perrier is a richer and rounder style, with pear, apple and lemon flavors, a lavish mouth feel and lovely toastiness.

The most meticulously prepared of all of the presentations at this years big staff summit was Champagne Laurent-Perrier, and after the tasting and talk I was left with a new appreciation for the history and commitment to quality at this great house in Tours-sur-Marne. I loved the 2006 Laurent-Perrier Brut Champagne for its laid back balance and excellent texture. It is composed of half each Chardonnay and Pinot Noir entirely from Grand Cru sites and aged for eight years on the lees. If you like your Champagne with a great balance between Meyer lemon zing and creamy richness, this has it all.
Drink from 2016 to 2026

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.
