Marks and reviews
Founded in 1812, the Laurent-Perrier Champagne House reached its golden age in 1948, thanks to Bernard de Nonancourt’s dynamism. Under the leadership of this visionary businessman, the house stood out by producing vintages that reflected its values of excellence and innovation.
Since its very beginnings, the house has built its identity around Chardonnay. Through the freshness and finesse that it brings to the blend, this grape variety is the hallmark of this Champagne reference.
Laurent-Perrier's avant-garde approach is reflected in its Grand Siècle and its multi-vintage blends, its Ultra Brut with its "zero dosage" style, and Cuvée Rosé, the first rosé champagne in this category. These original "breakthrough" cuvées, each creation being subject to an event, mark a new page in the history of Laurent-Perrier and its quest for excellence, for which it is internationally renowned.
The quintessence of Bernard de Nonancourt’s cherished values are in the Laurent-Perrier cuvées, unanimously recognised by connoisseurs.
Located in the picturesque village of Tours-sur-Marnes, the Laurent-Perrier House has its own high-quality vineyards, supplemented by long-term contracts with winegrowers in the best terroirs of the Montagne de Reims, the Vallée de la Marne and the Côte des Blancs.
In 1981, the Laurent-Perrier Champagne House introduced the "zero dosage" style, with the famous Ultra Brut cuvée, and is made exclusively from years selected by the Laurent-Perrier team which express the perfect balance between maturity and acidity.
Ultra Brut by Laurent-Perrier is made from a rigorous selection of grapes whose, potentially, higher alcohol content and low acidity enable the House to achieve the desired balance, without the addition of sugar.
Ultra Brut by Laurent-Perrier comprises a blend of Chardonnay (55%) and Pinot Noir (45%) to which 1 or 2 reserve wines, from a complementary year, are added. Benefiting from ageing in a cellar for a minimum of 6 years, more than 15 crus are used in the making of this wine.
The colour is clear and crystalline.
Intense and complex, the nose mixes fruity notes (citrus fruits, white fruits), floral notes (honeysuckle) and iodine, highlighting the delicious fresh feeling.
A very pure, delicate and airy wine with a long and persistent finish.
For an optimal tasting experience, serve between 8 and 10°C.
Food and wine pairing
Laurent-Perrier Ultra Brut will perfectly complement seafood, sushi, white fish ceviche, young parmesan cheese or pata negra ham.
