Magnum / 1.5 litre bottle. Laurent Perrier Vintage has a luminous bright gold colour, with fine and persistent bubbles. The nose is intense and complex, with aromas that blend fresh pineapple with other ripe fruits, such as white peach, to finish on hints of dried apricots and almonds. From the outset the pinot noir component comes to the fore, balanced by the chardonnay. This makes for a wine that seems fully ripe and rounded, with a silky finish showing notes of preserved fruit and vanilla.
Background: The Brut Millésimé is made exclusively from wines from the very best crus or villages. Historically, most of these crus have formed the basis of Laurent-Perrier's champagnes. The most prestigious among them are: Mesnil-sur-Oger, Oger, Avize, Cramant, Chouilly, Ambonnay, Bouzy, Tours-sur-Marne and Louvois. Ageing in cellars lasts for at least seven years, and very light dosage is used to allow the wine to reveal its true nature. Laurent-Perrier has elected to be highly selective by only producing a vintage in the very best years. This means that the Brut Millésimé is an exceptional and rare wine. Staying true to the House style: pure in its flavours and crisp in its definition, it aims to show the quintessential character of each year. Laurent-Perrier's vintage wines have excellent ageing capacity.
