The House of Laurent-Perrier was founded in 1812 by André Michel Pierlot and took the name Vve Laurent-Perrier when Mathilde Emilie Perrier, the widow of Eugène Laurent, combined the two family names after she decided to expand the business.
With its composition marked by a high percentage of chardonnay, Laurent-Perrier Brut is the signature House style, offering freshness, lightness, and elegance, consistently showcasing the essential qualities sought by Laurent-Perrier.
50% Chardonnay (a particularly high proportion), 35% Pinot Noir, 15% Pinot Meunier
Ideal cellar-ageing time. The 75cl bottle of Laurent-Perrier Brut is cellar-aged for a minimum of three years, whereas by law, only 18 months is required. Magnums are aged 4-5 years. This ageing process naturally gives the wine balance and freshness, after which it is topped up with a small amount of dosage. Before they are shipped, the bottles are rested for several months longer.
In opting to blend its Brut champagne with a majority of Chardonnay, the rarest grape variety in the Champagne region, Laurent-Perrier was expressing its difference and asserting the signature ‘House’ style of freshness, lightness, and elegance.
Pale gold in colour with a steady flow of fine and persistent bubbles. Delicate yet complex, fresh, and well-balanced with hints of citrus and white fruits. Well defined, and subtly rounded with expressive flavours. The fruit progressively emerges to reveal a finely balanced champagne displaying great length on the finish.
