Not all vintages are worthy of a special bottling. At Laurent-Perrier, only the most exceptional of harvests will lead to a Vintage Brut and 1993 was one such harvest. Capable of extending cellars aging, the Laurent-Perrier Vintage Brut 1993 finely showcases the characteristics of this growing season. After flowering in Mid-June, the vines were treated to a warm and calm summer, allowing them to produce healthy grape clusters of superb quality. This balanced and well-rounded Champagne is the product of both the cooperation of nature and the skill of our winemaker, Alain Terrier. As is the tradition for Laurent-Perrier, dosage is light, to enable the quality and characteristics of the wine to shine through. Besides being an astoundingly graceful aperitif, Laurent-Perrier Brut Vintage 1993 is very well suited for enjoyment throughout the meal. Poultry and white meats match perfectly with this wine and it is an excellent accompaniment to both fresh and saltwater fish.
