A fine bead in the glass, it shows a bit more warm, round fruit than in previous bottlings, leading into a slightly bitter finish of citrus rind, lime zest and wet stone. Score: 89. —Paul Gregutt, December 01, 2006.
A light-weight, delicate bubbly, with floral and apple notes married to a lithe and lively profile. It has moderate length. Ideal as an aperitif. Drink now. Score: 88. —Bruce Sanderson, November 30, 2006.
Delicate yet complex nose, with hints of citrus fruit, and a good balanced palate.
Brut non-vintage is always the expression of the House style and, as such, it is the signature champagne. Laurent-Perrier Brut’s style is defined by its very high proportion of Chardonnay which provides a natural purity, freshness and elegance. These essential characteristics, expressed in all our champagnes, are a good introduction to the spirit of Laurent-Perrier.The Laurent-Perrier Brut also benefits from ideal ageing in the cellars: three years minimum for a 75cl bottle, and four to five years for a magnum. Its balance and natural freshness are enhanced by a light dosage. After the dosage, the wines are kept in the cellar to rest for several months before shipment
Perfect as an apéritif, it also goes very well with food.
