Laurent-Perrier "La Cuvée" Brut Champagne (1.5L)

SKU #1336066 93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark The brioche and cooked-apple and cream character really comes through here. Full-bodied and round with fine bubbles. Flavorful and intense. Vivid, bread-dough finish. This is four years on lees. 55% chardonnay and the rest pinot. Inner quote mark (9/2019)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The latest rendition of Laurent-Perrier's NV Brut is showing nicely, wafting from the glass with scents of almond paste, iodine, white peach, warm biscuits and mandarin. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, with an elegant, lively profile, displaying a youthfully frothy mousse, good tension at the core and an attractively chalky finish. This is an excellent non-vintage wine that seems to reflect the maison's efforts to improve their grape sourcing over the last few years. (WK) Inner quote mark (4/2019)

90 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This is smooth and softly textured wine. With its relatively high dosage and creamy texture, this standard nonvintage cuvée is immediately accessible and delicious. Great fruit makes it a great aperitif style of Champagne. (RV) Inner quote mark (8/2018)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A minerally version in an aperitif style, with smoke and oyster shell accents to the yellow plum and toast point flavors, backed by firm acidity and a lively bead. Drink now. (AN, Web Only-2020) Inner quote mark

K&L Notes

This replacement for the Laurent-Perrier Brut was created after the house acquired new vineyards and contracts in the Côtes de Blancs, allowing for a bump up in the composition favoring Chardonnay, and an extra year of aging on the lees. This is a big step up from the regular brut! (Gary Westby, K&L Champagne buyer)

Wow! This is everything I love about Laurent-Perrier's classic brut, just amplified. More chalky Chardonnay and an extra year on the lees give the La Cuvée boosted minerality and complexity. It still shows the easygoing apple fruit of the original, with a sophistication that belies its great price point. Plus the Magnum ages beautifully, much appreciated with the larger Chardonnay component. A beautiful choice for your next party.
