Laurent Perrier La Cuvee Champagne

Champagne Laurent Perrier La Cuvee NV

Champagne, Imported   |    750ml   |    12.5%
Laurent Perrier La Cuvée is this famous Champagne house's brand new release, which has been 15 years in the making. Replacing the hugely popular L-P Brut NV, this impressive Champagne becomes the new flagship of the House’s style; one of purity, freshness, elegance and delicacy.

Some 100 crus now go into making La Cuvée (up from 55), with a slightly higher portion of chardonnay used, with each bottling receiving a lighter dosage of 10.5g/L (down from 12.5g/L). While we've been big fans of Laurent Perrier's L-P Brut for some time, this new offering delivers a more refined, floral, silkier and slightly creamier texture than is predecessor. A delicious Champagne that offers super value at this price.

"La Cuvée is the new, shiny, rebranded Brut NV, only just launched. In 2004 Laurent-Perrier got access to quite a large bit of good Chardonnay vineyards, and this set in motion a 13-year plan to adapt and 'enhance' the LP Brut. 55% Chardonnay, 35% Pinot Noir, 10% Pinot Meunier from 110 growers. Base vintage 2012 with 30% reserve wine. They've dropped the dosage from 12.5 g/l to 9 g/l, and the wine spends four years on the lees. Pale colour. Lemon shortbread nose, the tiniest hint of marzipan, verbena. Needle-fine mousse and intense, sharpened, lemon-sherbet acidity. Very pointed, with a bit of lemon-bon-bon sweetness on the finish. Razor-sharp finish. Elegant, angular, classic.- Tamlyn Currin,, June 2017.

Established in 1812, Laurent Perrier is the largest independent family-owned House in Champagne. Situated in Tours-sur-Marne, at the heart of the Champagne vineyards, Laurent-Perrier is perfectly situated to maintain close contact with the growers and secure the best grapes from the different Grand Crus.
This wine comes from the purest grape juice and it alone allows Laurent-Perrier to craft 'La Cuvee', a champagne wine of great finesse and a beautiful freshness obtained after a long ageing process in our cellars.

Laurent-Perrier’s style and personality are defined by its very high proportion of Chardonnay. Purity, freshness and elegance - essential characteristics, expressed in this champagne - are a good introduction to the spirit of the House.

A blend with 50 to 55% Chardonnay, nearly double the average in Champagne, gives a unique personality to this brut champagne.
