Laurent-Perrier Rose is the best-selling rose Champagne in the world and it is one of the few roses still made by the traditional "saignee" method. Unlike most rosé Champagnes, no still red wine is added to the Champagne at any point. The "saignee" method begins and lasts for 2-3 days. The juice has direct skin maceration from which the wine extrapolates all its color, flavor and aromas, including many true pinot noir varietal characteristics. This painstaking winemaking technique produces a rose Champagne of unparalleled quality. The Cuvée Rosé Brut is aged on its lees for at least four years, adding complexity and depth to the forward pinot noir fruit. Each bottle is manually riddled and disgorged. All grapes in the blend come exclusively from ten 100%-rated Grand Cru vineyards.
Showcasing the versatility of Pinot Noir, Laurent-Perrier Cuvée Rosé Brut can be matched with a wide variety of dishes including salmon, chicken, lamb or duck. It also makes a wonderfully refreshing aperitif and pairs well with lightly matured cheeses.
