Written Notes

Perhaps the best and most elegant ordinary vintage champagne ever from Laurent-Perrier. There is even the "clean sheets tone" of Grand Siècle in this wine. The mineral tones are very much to the fore and are integrated with toasted bread and a pure, flowery Chardonnay. Typical of the house and the only thing to do is to stock up with a lot in the cellar.

Medium-deep lemon gold colour. Nicely eveolved toasty nose with ripe apple on the background. Charred pleasant charancter, smooth, easygoing and gentle, delightful. Gunpowder.
