Laurent Perrier Brut has a slightly yeasty style with a generous dose of Chardonnay in the blend. 20% of reserve wine from older vintages is added to an assemblage from no less than fifty different vineyards either owned or contracted to the house. This complex recipe helps to keep the consistent style and flavour of the non vintage Laurent Perrier Brut.
The house of Laurent Perrier was established in 1812, its namesake originating from Eugene Laurent who was gifted the estate on the death of founder Alphonse Pierlot . Eugene married Mathilde Perrier who changed the name to Veuve(widow) Laurent Perrier when her husband died in 1887. The current owners the de Nonancourts took charge in 1939 developing the business considerably into what is now one of the most successful of the Grands Marques.
Chardonnay is the dominant grape variety in Brut L-P. Its proportion is unusually high for a non-vintage Champagne blend, being double the average. Wines from more than 55 crus make up the blend (10% to 20% of which consists of reserve wines, though this can be higher in some years). Because of its balance and natural freshness, Brut L-P only receives a light dosage. Its ideal aging period is about three years. The color is a pale golden hue, with fine and persistent bubbles. The nose is fresh and delicate, showing good complexity with hints of citrus and white fruit. Brut L-P's light style has led the way in making Champagne the ideal aperitif drink. Its perfect balance, crispness of flavors and finesse also make it the ideal companion for fish, poultry and white meat.
Laurent Perrier’s NV Brut is an attractive wine laced with ripe pears, apricots, dried flowers and spices. The soft, caressing style is best enjoyed over the next few years after disgorgement.
