94/100 | Cameron Douglas, MS
Laurent-Perrier La Cuvée is the standard-bearer for the house style of Laurent-Perrier. Crisp, fresh and elegant, La Cuvée reflects the fundamental essence of their Champagnes.
Laurent-Perrier, which is 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 bold, mouth-filling wine in a complex style with brioche, roasted nut and hazelnut characters.
Cameron Douglas, Master Sommelier "94pts. Elegant, even, nutty, fruity and enticing autolysis bouquet; aromas and flavours of lemon, yellow apple, grapefruit and white peach; abundant autolysis flavours with a soft chalky texture accentuated by bright bold acidity; Firm mousse with a plush bubble carrying plenty of flavour and finish. The finish is dry and lengthy with citrus and tree fruits wrapped in a light brioche blanket are at the core of this wine. Drink anytime."
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."
