Laurent-Perrier Blanc de Blancs Brut Nature Champagne

SKU #1441414 94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A dense and flavorful chardonnay with creamy texture and flavor. Lots of citrus and grapefruit and very vinous. A blanc de blancs with weight yet freshness. Pure chardonnay with no dosage. A new wine. Lovely finish. 40% 2009 and 60% 2012. Inner quote mark (9/2019)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A new cuvée from Laurent-Perrier, the inaugural NV Blanc de Blancs Nature represents the first time this house, for all its emphasis on Chardonnay, has ever released a blanc de blancs. Offering up aromas of citrus fruit, green apple, oyster shell and warm bread, the wine is medium to full-bodied, lively and precise, with a bright spine of ripe acidity and a delicately chalky finish. It's a blend of the 2012 and 2013 vintages with reserve wine from 2009, and chef de cave Michel Fauconnet told me that he had sought precision from the Chardonnay of the Montagne de Reims and texture from that of the Côte de Blancs. (WK) Inner quote mark (4/2019)

93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This Champagne is certainly dry, a crisp apple- and citrus-led wine from Chardonnay. Its acidity has softened with bottle age to give a wine that is beautifully balanced, ready for more aging in bottle. Drink now for the freshness or wait until 2021 for more maturity. (RV) Inner quote mark (12/2019)

92 points Decanter

Outer quote mark The base year here is the superb 2012, contributing 60% of the blend. The balance is reserve wine, but unusually from one year only and not an immediate predecessor to the base: it’s from the sunny and generous 2009 vintage, which lends weight and complexity. Disgorged in January 2019, this is a great success, combining a familiar saline austerity with floral notes, hints of lime and calamansi and an almost adamantine finish. Michel suggests drinking it with sea bass cooked in a clay pot, though I would try it with lobster or oysters too! Drinking Window 2019 - 2023 (SF) Inner quote mark (6/2019)

90 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark Ginger’s rooty spice parallels the austere acidity of this wine, while the flesh is full and generous enough to fill it with apple and lemon flavors. It’s round for a Brut Nature, ready to take on an oyster pan roast. Inner quote mark (12/2019)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Greenish lemon yellow. Tiny little bead. 2012 is very concentrated because it was such as a small harvest and 2009 had lots of fruit and freshness. They don’t want a hard finish since there’s zero dosage. Lightly reductive and very Laurent-Perrier on the nose. Tight and delicate. The same texture as Grand Siècle. Very long and tightly knit. A little brother for Grand Siècle? Splits the difference between a house and a grower’s champagne. 17/20 points. Drink 2019-2025. (JR) Inner quote mark (6/2019)

K&L Notes

This all Chardonnay Champagne is from a combination of Grand and Premier cru vineyards and is aged for six years on the lees. No sugar of any kind is added to this Champagne, and the second fermentation is done with yeast and grape must! -Gary Westby, K&L

This Brut Nature Blanc de Blanc is intended for an apertif, but I think it would pair so well with food (think sushi!) and it delivers! The beautiful aromatic nose with hints of candied almonds pairs so well with the balanced acid, minerality and salinity on the palate. It's the linear finish that really got me. From start to finish, each note represented the fresh, clean and elegant champagne Laurent Perrier is known for. We don't have much in stock so get yours before we run out!
