Winemaker's Notes:

Golden yellow color, with green highlights with a steady stream of fine and persistent bubbles. The initial aroma is marked by an attractive fruity character which then evolves displaying notes of ripe fruits and honey (acacia honey). Initial impressions are of vivacity and a fine mousse. As its character is gradually revealed, there is a sense of complexity, depth of flavor and a still youthful freshness. The long finish is marked by persistent notes of yellow stone fruits (mirabelle plum).

Laurent-Perrier is selective when declaring vintages – rarely declaring them and only in the very best years with a unique character. Thus the Brut Millesime (Vintage Brut) is an exceptional wine and while it maintains the signature style of the House's wines, it reflects the unique characteristics of the vintage year. Laurent-Perrier's millesimes have excellent aging capacity.

About Laurent Perrier:

Founded in 1812, Laurent-Perrier has been avant-garde in creating unique and elegant Champagnes for nearly two hundred years, making it one of the world’s most esteemed Champagne brands, and also the largest family owned brand. Located in the northeastern region of France, the Champagne region has one of the coolest possible wine producing climates, which is moderated by the Marne River and the region’s proximity to the ocean. Laurent-Perrier is based in the picturesque village of Tours-sur-Marne – an ideal location at the intersection between Champagne’s three foremost sub-regions: Montagne de Reims, Vallée de la Marne and Côte des Blancs.
