The Story

Cuvée Alexandra Rosé. The first vintage of this wine, 1982, was launched for daughter Alexandra’s wedding in 1987. Fortunately, a few bottles still remain for the rest of the world as well. Cuvée Alexandra Rosé is vintage champagne that is made only in the best years. Guillaume Deglise says:- All grapes come from Grand Cru vineyards. Eighty per cent of the mix is Pinot Noir and the rest is Chardonnay.

Cuvée Alexandra Rosé is a rare rosé champagne because a method called saignee is used in its making. This delicate method means that the grapes are left to be extracted with their skins until the desired colour has been achieved. Deglise reminds us:
- Making rosés by this method is highly demanding. I think our former cellar manager even slept next to the tank so as not to miss the moment when the colour and the aroma of the wine were at their best!


Cuvée Alexandra Rosé is stored for a long time, over ten years, and it is deliciously ready to drink right after its launching, but it will certainly continue to develop exquisitely after that.

Vintage 2004

Laurent-Perrier's premium Vintage Cuvée Rosé is like no other champagne and is the outcome of a deliberately innovative approach to winemaking.

Alexandra Rosé is the ultimate expression of the passion, the exacting standards and the sheer excellence of the House. Produced in very small quantities, this outstanding, subtly powerful wine is rare and much sought-after.

Creation of a Great Wine
Laurent-Perrier's Alexandra Rosé occupies a unique position in the House range of champagnes. Filial love as well as an unbridled passion for winemaking presided at its creation.

Bernard de Nonancourt unveiled his Grande Cuvée Rosé Millésimé 1982s, named after his daughter Alexandra, at the time of her wedding in 1987.

This premium cuvée magnificently illustrates the spirit of Laurent-Perrier, its excellence, and the transmission of a body of knowledge and skills that have remained intact, with total respect for the family values.

Inside Information

Bernard de Nonancourt took the opportunity of his elder daughter Alexandra's marriage in 1987 to create this vintage rosé champagne, which expresses the very highest standards of the House.

Laurent-Perrier, which also produces the benchmark non-vintage rosé champagne, was destined to produce a luxury cuvée rosé, an exclusive and rare wine which occupies a unique niche in its range.

The selection of plots and vineyard sites for the perfectly ripe Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes was extremely stringent. During the maceration of the Pinot Noir grapes a small amount of Chardonnay was added. The delicate Chardonnay, blended with Pinot Noir produces a pale coloured wine with a uniquely complex aroma.
