|Grape||Chardonnay, Pinot Noir|
What We Say
Classic expression from this immensely popular Champagne House. Fresh, delicate citrus and white fruit aromas are followed by an elegant, toasty brioche, fruity palate with balanced crisp acidity.
What They Say
In opting to blend its Brut champagne with a majority of Chardonnay, the rarest grape variety in the Champagne region, Laurent-Perrier was expressing its difference and asserting the signature ‘House’ style of freshness, lightness, and elegance.
About The Producer Laurent-Perrier
Laurent-Perrier is the first family-owned and independent Champagne House. Established in Tours-sur-Marne in 1812, the House is built on four strong convictions. Champagne relies on the art of blending: the blending of grape varieties, the blending of Crus, and the blending of years. Beyond rare vintages, Laurent-Perrier takes this art to its zenith with Grand Siècle. Chardonnay is at the core of Laurent-Perrier's style. This grape, often dominant, imparts the freshness, elegance, and purity sought after, making Laurent-Perrier's style distinct. As an innovator in Champagne, Laurent-Perrier was the first House to offer groundbreaking Cuvées, including Grand Siècle, Cuvée Rosé, Ultra Brut, and Alexandra Rosé Millésimé.
