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.
The Laurent-Perrier Champagne House distinctive feature is that they only produce a vintage champagne every other year, when the rest of the Champagne region produce vintages more than three years out of four, on average. Constantly choosing excellence has led to the well-established international reputation of this great Champagne House.
From an exceptional year, this Laurent-Perrier Brut Millésimé 2012 is made exclusively from Chardonnay grapes stemming from the Côte des Blancs and Pinot Noir from the Montagne de Reims.
2012 was a year marked by changeable weather conditions. The winter and spring were punctuated by frost episodes that had a strong impact on the vineyard. At the beginning of June, an unusually rare and violent storm, along with hail, caused significant damage in several hamlets. These extreme conditions were offset by a dry and sunny summer which favoured the optimal ripening of the grapes.
Pinot Noir (50%)
This champagne reveals a beautiful white gold colour. The effervescence is fine and delicate.
Complex, the nose mixes floral fragrances with delicious notes of citrus and white peaches.
The attack is lively and delicate. The palate combines a beautiful minerality and gourmet aromas of grapefruit with great finesse.
For an optimal tasting experience, serve between 9 and 11°C.
Food and wine pairing
This Laurent-Perrier 2012 Brut Millésimé will pair beautifully with seafood, fine fish, poultry, veal-based dishes or pressed cooked cheeses (young Comté, Beaufort).
