Laurent-Perrier Champagne Cuvee Rose Brut

750ML    
Sku: 011479

Tasting notes
A fairly deep salmon-pink color enhanced by a long stream of fine bubbles.
Nose: Clear and wonderfully fresh, reminiscent of red and black fruit like raspberries, black cherries and blackcurrants.
Taste: The first impression is the freshness of the fruit. The sensation is rounded and supple and remains on the palate for a considerable time.

Review
The best selling rose Champagne in the world, Laurent-Perrier's Cuvee Rose Brut is one of the few roses still made by the saignee method. To emphasize this traditional technique, the Champagne is elegantly showcased in an embossed bottle that is a reproduction of those used in the late 17th century.
Deep orange-pink color, with a fine bead, the first impression on the palate is that of fresh fruit, followed by a full-bodied yet elegant mouthfeel.
100% Pinot Noir.
All grapes in the blend come exclusively from ten 100%-rated Grand Cru vineyards.
Serve between 45F and 50F.

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


Wine maker notes
Cuvée Rosé Laurent-Perrier is unique in terms of its history, the way it is made, and the design of its bottle. Prior to 1968, making non-vintage rosé champagne was virtually unthinkable. It was in the midst of a cultural revolution that the visionary Bernard de Nonancourt gave it its credentials. This daring wine combines real structure with freshness and a soft, vinous character.
In its elegant bottle inspired by the times of French King Henri IV, Cuvée Rosé Laurent-Perrier soon made a name for itself worldwide.

Other text
Composition: Cuvée Rosé Laurent-Perrier is made using nearly a dozen crus, most of them grands crus. They mainly derive from the South and North parts of the Montagne de Reims - including the celebrated Côte de Bouzy - with a preference for crus from Ambonnay, Bouzy, Louvois, the south part of Tours-sur-Marne, Verzenay, Verzy and the north part of Mailly. Grape supplies are the guarantee of Cuvée Rosé's undeniable quality and consistency of style. To succeed with such exacting requirements, Laurent-Perrier relies on the privileged relationships it has built up with grape growers over many years. The quality of its supplies means Laurent-Perrier can be extremely selective. The best vines and the best crus are chosen so that, in each harvest, only grapes of the quality required to make such a rosé wine are selected. In parallel, special plots in the vineyards owned by Laurent-Perrier itself have been adapted for growing Pinot Noir grapes using special methods.

Food pairing
Cuvee Rose Laurent-Perrier combines a vinous character with great freshness. It can be savoured on its own, and also with many bold food and wine pairings. Tender and ethereal, its bouquet of freshly-picked berry fruits easily surprises, constituting a very pleasant appetiser. Served at a temperature of 8-10°C, it delivers up its rich aromas and pairs with many foods, from starters to dessert. It also goes wonderfully with foie gras canapes topped with red currants, or wafer-thin slivers of finest pata negra ham, and many other dishes, including marinated raw fish and braised guineafowl. It works perfectly at home too, with soft, creamy cheeses such as Chaource, Mussy-sur-Seine, and Langres, and with desserts such as a berry fruit salad. The more daring marry it with Asian or subcontinent cuisine.
