Laurent-Perrier Ultra Brut NV 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. Launched in the early 1980s by Bernard de Nonancourt, Ultra Brut Laurent-Perrier was inspired by the success of the zero-dosage, with no added sugar. The challenge is to bring fruit ripeness and the Cellar Master is on a constant quest for the absolute, allowing the purity of the grape to express itself in all it's dazzling glory.

Made from 55% Chardonnay and 45% Pinot Noir, using over a dozen crus rated an average 97%, Ultra Brut is custom-crafted from grapes of high sugar and low acidity from 15 villages in ripe vintages where nature allows such rare characteristics to develop. After a meticulous selection process, only those grapes with the desired characteristics will be allowed into the composition of Ultra Brut.

There is an array of pear and grapefruit flavours with an underlying dash of citrus. Four years of age add hints of biscuity complexity. Lovely freshness for those who love it ultra dry by itself, otherwise let it express itself with food.

Grape Varieties: 55% Chardonnay, 45% Pinot Noir
Dosage: 0 g/L

“Rich, gunpowdery, highly toasty nose. Lemon curd, vanilla and green apple on the distinctly Chardonnay lead nose. Restrained and very dry on the vibrant and linear palate with autolysis coming through beautifully. Stylish, with a fine mousse and wonderful fruit purity. I like to give it a year or two to boost the toastiness.”

“Austere and withdrawn on the palate, with a fair dose of bitterness revealed by the lack of sweetness. A brutally honest rendition of the style. (RH)”

“Pale yellow. Racy mineral- and ginger-inflected citrus and orchard fruits on the nose, with a subtle floral nuance adding complexity. On the palate, dry, incisive lime and green apple flavors show an intense, stony character and a touch of smokiness. Becomes fleshier with air and finishes spicy and long, with building citrus fruit character and very good focus.”

“Ultra Brut, the original no-dosage Champagne, is the name and that’s just how this bone-dry wine tastes. It’s totally crisp, fruity, structured and fresh. Acidity from tight citrus combines with apples and pears to produce a wine that offers both fruitiness and dryness. Like many super-dry Champagnes, it will benefit from some bottle aging, so drink at least six months after purchase.”

“Light yellow. Tightly focused lemon/lime and quince aromas give way to deeper melon and nectarine with air. Shows impressive clarity and lift on the palate, offering bitter citrus pith and pear skin flavors and a hint of anise. Lingers with impressive tenacity, leaving notes of smoky minerals and sweet butter behind.”
