GOLD MEDAL | NZIWS 2017
94/100 | Cameron Douglas, MW
Laurent-Perrier, still family-owned by the de Nonacourt family, is now the fourth largest Champagne House. It is a very popular Grande Marque and the Chardonnay dominant (55%) La Cuvée is dry and lemony with a crisp, biscuity finish.
Laurent Perrier writes "Pale gold in colour. Fine bubbles feed a persistent mousse. A delicate nose with hints of fresh citrus and white flowers. The wine’s complexity is expressed in successive notes like vine peach and white fruits notes. A perfect balance between freshness and delicacy with fruity flavours very present on the finish."
