Laurent Perrier Cuvée Rosé Brut Nv

Laurent Perrier Cuve Ros Brut Nv

Ref: A07282

The house of Laurent Perrier dates back to the early 19th century when the Laurent family sold up their cooper's business and moved into the remains of an 11th century abbey at Tours-sur-Marne from where they sold their own Champagne. The son of the family, Eugene, married Mathilde Perrier and on his death in 1887 she renamed the firm Veuve Laurent-Perrier. She, however, died heirless and the company was purchased by Marie-Louise de Nonancourt, the sister of that other Champsgne name, Henri Lanson.

But it was not until after the Second World War (during which Madame Nonancourt walled up the entire stock so well that the occupying forces never found out) that Laurent Perrier made a claim for fame. At that time the house was ranked a mere 98th among Champagne producers but Bernard de Nonancourt has raised the company so that now it is one of the top Champagne producers.

Laurent Perrier's Brut Rosé is the best selling rosé Champagne in the world, and is one of the few rosés still made by the saignée method. To emphasize this traditional technique, the Champagne is bottled in an embossed bottle that is a reproduction of those used in the late 17th century.

This salmon-pink rosé Champagne is truly remarkable for its highly expressive bouquet, stemming from very careful preservation of fresh fruit aromas during the winemaking. Made with 100% pinot noir using skin contact, also known as the saignée method, Laurent-Perrier's know-how and attention to quality produces a finely crafted rosé with both depth and freshness. It has become the benchmark for rosé Champagne around the world.

Meticulous sorting of the grapes and controlled maceration help the extraction of colour and reveal the full aromatic richness of the pinot noir grape. Unlike most rosé Champagnes, the basis of Laurent-Perrier Cuvée Rosé Brut is obtained by drawing juice off of red grapes in the vat, rather than simply blending red and white wines. The length of cellaring is adapted to the need to preserve the fresh red fruit aromas.

The Cuvée Rosé Brut makes a delicious aperitif. It pairs very well with pork or poultry, and is an extraordinary match for red fruit desserts. The most audacious may even pair it with Asian cuisine.

Showcasing the versatility of Pinot Noir, Laurent-Perrier Cuvée Rosé Brut can be paired with a wide variety of dishes including salmon, chicken, lamb or duck. It also makes a wonderfully refreshing apéritif and works well with lightly matured cheeses.

Extremely elegant wines that have undergone a surprisingly long bottle-ageing process that gives them a roundness not often found at this level.
