Winemaker's Notes:

"This is sumptuous and delicate, offering peach, beeswax and ginger notes. Firmly structured, with a chalklike sensation underneath that emerges on the finish. Drink now through 2015."

About Laurent Perrier:

Laurent-Perrier has been located at Tours-sur-Marne since its creation in 1812, placing it at the epicenter of three famous Champagne vineyards: the Montagne de Reims, the Vallée de la Marne and the Côte des Blancs. Since 1949, the House has climbed from 100th place worldwide to 4th place. The impulse behind this growth has come from Bernard de Nonancourt, a man with an ardent and courageous entrepreneurial spirit and the will to build a team around the ambition to create a unique brand.

Laurent-Perrier creates wines that give pleasure and are based on a solid savoir-faire. It was the first champagne House to introduce a large proportion of Chardonnay – a minority grape in the region – into the blend of its Brut L-P. Laurent-Perrier has also created other products, such as Cuvée Rosé Brut, a wine with a unique rosé color with the characteristic aromas of red berries. The House has also created Ultra-Brut, a natural brut (unsweetened) wine that requires the skill of subtle assemblage of high-quality grapes, since this wine can only be made from very mature grapes with low acid content.

Laurent-Perrier is a member of the prestigious Comité Colbert, which gathers together French luxury creators in all lines.
