Review of wines from Champagne House Laurent-Perrier

Champagne Laurent-Perrier er kjent for blant annet sine rosé Champagne og årgangs Champagne, men visste du også at de lager Premium Cuveé Champagner?  Disse vinene er blends av top cru vinmarker i Champagne fra de beste årgangene. Resultatet blir viner som er aromatiske, komplekse og med langt lagringspotensial. Les smaksnotater fra Jane Nisbet Huseby om vinportefølje til dette berømte vinhuset fra en vinsmaking i Oslo tidligere i sommer. Artikkelen er på engelsk.

About Champagne Laurent-Perrier

Originally founded in 1812, however, the name Champagne Laurent-Perrier came into use in 1964. Bernard de Nonancourt, one of Champagne´s most important figures in the 20th century, took over Laurent-Perrier in 1948.  Whilst the Nonancourt family still owns 70% of the business the  Champagne house is managed by Bernards’s two daughters Alexandra and Stéphanie, together with Cellar Master Michel Fauconnnet.

Laurent-Perrier has always been at the forefront of innovation in Champagne and was the first house to use stainless-steel vats to protect the delicate aromas from oxygen during the fermentation process. They were also the first house to create both a zero-dosage champagne (Ultra Brut) and a multi-vintage Prestige Cuvée (Grand Siècle). Today they produce approx. 8 million bottles per year, and their Cuvée Rosé is perhaps the most recognized rosé Champagne on the planet.

As early as 1976 Laurent-Perrier launched a Brut Natura (zero dosage) becoming the first Champagne without any added sugar in the dosage.

The Ultra Brut is a blend of 55% Chardonnay, 45% Pinot Noir with grapes sourced from 15 Crus. The reserve wines are based mainly on the 2016 and 2012 vintages.  Spends approx. 6 years aging prior to disgorgement. Rigorous selection is required to obtain grapes with exactly the right level of ripeness to achieve a wine so well balanced it doesn’t require dosage at bottling.
