Laurent-Perrier Alexandra Rosé 2004 Champagne

The house was set up by Eugene Laurent in Tours-Sur-Marne, and after marrying Mathilde-Emilie Perrier, the company name was born. Marie-Louise de Nonancourt, a member of another great Champagne family, Lanson, acquired the house in 1938 after the owners died. In 1948 her son, Bernard, who had spent much of the Second World War fighting in the Resistance, took over the business and began the process of rebuilding it after the war. Laurent-Perrier has been on a steep growth curve, with expansion in recent years now seeing the house ranked number five in Champagne by volume, but finding a comfortable equilibrium in that precarious balance between volume and finely tuned quality is what sets Laurent-Perrier apart.

Alexandra Rosé is a rare prestige cuvée Rosé that is selected from the best plots of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay Grand Crus. 2004 is only the seventh production of Alexandra Rosé since its first release of 1982 in 1987. Produced from 100% Grand Cru vineyards, from Ambonnay, Bouzy, Verzenay for the Pinot Noir and Avize, Cramant and Le Mesnil-sur-Oger for the Chardonnay.

2004 was a year that saw an initial winter of mild temperatures and intermittent storms and hail, the spring and summer months were hot and sunny and the sugar levels late on in September produced good quality fruits, especially for Pinot Noir grapes. A huge harvest in general for the region and overall many experts believe that 2004 was one of the greatest vintages in two decades.

On the nose, hints of strawberries and red currants combined with candied fruits. A stunning palate, dominated with Pinot Noir elegance, well refined with a superb balance, more red fruits and a delicate but full bodied finish of strawberries and blackcurrants. From magnum, given time to mature will be fabulous.

2004 is the first vintage that Alexandra Rosé has been released in magnum format.

Grape Varieties: Pinot Noir 80%, Chardonnay 20%
Dosage: 7-8 g/L

“Elegantly berried with Volney-like refined Pinot note. On the reductive side with stylish toasty-gunpowdery notes. Raspberry and peach, forest floor. Light-weight, vivacious, tense palate. Super sophisticated style of rosé. Youthful still, and especially the magnums should be left for later.”

“First produced in the 1987 vintage to celebrate the marriage of owner Bernard de Nonancourt's eldest daughter, this bottling is now mature. Ripe, it still retains plenty of red fruits while also allowing the toasty character to show through. It's a rosé that calls for food, a rich and balanced wine that is just perfect to drink now.”

94/100
“(80% pinot noir and 20% chardonnay): Light, bright orange-pink. High-pitched red berry, orange zest and floral scents are underscored by an intense mineral nuance. Taut, linear and strikingly pure, offering deeply concentrated redcurrant and strawberry scents and hints of allspice, smoky lees and jasmine. Powerful yet lithe rose with superb finishing power, focus and mineral-driven persistence.”
