The Story

The wine comes from the purest grape juice and it alone allows Laurent-Perrier to craft ‘La Cuvée’,  a champagne of great finesse and a beautiful freshness obtained after a long ageing process in our cellars.

Laurent-Perrier’s style and personality are defined by its very high proportion of Chardonnay. Purity, freshness and elegance – essential characteristics, expressed in this champagne – are a good introduction to the spirit of the House.

 

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.

After 15 years of extensive work on supply quality, steady progress regarding wine making and increased mastery of the art of blending, Laurent-Perrier unveils La Cuvée.

 

For blending, only the musts of the cuvée are used, so only 80% of the grape juice extracted from pressing.

Grape varietals:

A majority of Chardonnay, over 50%

Pinot Noir, over 30%

Rounded out with Meunier, between 10 and 20%

+ Reserve wines up to 20-30% to ensure perfect consistency in style.

Crus: the blend of Laurent-Perrier La Cuvée is made from more than 100 crus* selected by Laurent-Perrier.

La Cuvée benefits from ideal ageing in the cellar. Its balance and freshness are enhanced by a light dosage.

* These quantitative data may vary and are given for illustrative purposes.

Written Notes

Bright yellow colour with slightly golden hue. Refined nose with aroma reminiscent of fresh citrus fruit, white blossoms, green hazelnuts and hints of yellow plums and greengage. On the palate well balanced with distinct freshness and fine minerality, the flavour quotes the aroma of the nose, great freshness and elegance.

  • 90p

The brioche and cooked-apple and cream character really comes through here. Full-bodied and round with fine bubbles. Flavorful and intense. Vivid, bread-dough finish. This is four years on lees. 55% Chardonnay and the rest Pinot.

  • 93p

Smoke and toast accents lace crushed raspberry, candied lemon zest and apple blossom notes in this firm, aperitif-style Champagne.
