Description

The expression of an exceptional Champagne vintage

The producer

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.

The vineyard

Located in the picturesque village of Tours-sur-Marne, Laurent-Perrier 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.

The wine

The unique Laurent-Perrier Champagne House onyl produces a vintage every other year, whereas other champagne houses produce vintages, on average, every three out of four years. This crucial decision has contributed to the excellent and well-established international reputation of this fine Champagne House. Laurent-Perrier Brut Vintage 2008 is the result of an exceptional year and a rigorous selection of grapes from the finest Chardonnay and Pinot Noir vintages that boast a great aromatic richness.

The vintage

Following a cold winter and a wet spring, summer was mild, without attaining excessive tempetures. The harvest was then carried out in almost perfect conditions with dry and cool weather, which ensured that the aromatic profile of the grapes was preserved.

The blend

Laurent-Perrier Brut Vintage 2008 is an exceptional champagne made from 50% Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs and 50% Pinot Noir from the Montagne de Reims.

The tasting

Colour

White gold in colour with a fine and delicate effervescence.

Nose

Mineral and chalky, the nose is marked by elegant citrus and white fruit fragrances.

Palate

Lively, the palate is seduced by this champagne’s persistent freshness. The finish blends notes of bitter orange and lemon.

Service

For an optimal tasting experience, serve between 9 and 11°C.

Food and wine pairing

With its broad aromatic richness and intensity, Laurent-Perrier Brut Vintage 2008 will provide a pleasurable food and wine pairing experience! This champagne will complement shellfish, noble fish or white meats.
