Laurent-Perrier Vintage 2006 Champagne

More vintages: 2002The 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.

The vintage is made from prestigious Crus of 50% Chardonnay and 50% Pinot Noir. The Pinot Noir comes from the Montagne de Reims: Verzy, Mailly, Ambonnay, Verzenay, Ay, Bouzy, and Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs: Avize, Cramant, Oger, Mesnil sur Oger and Chouilly. It has been bottle aged in cellars for almost eight years before being disgorged prior to release. The 2006 vintage began with a cold winter, moved into a mild spring and finished with a contrasting summer. Severe episodes of hail affected several hectares, but the prevailing ripeness was satisfactory. The 2006 Chardonnays were richly complex, aromatic and well-rounded, offering considerable ageing potential; vital for use in a vintage cuvée. The Pinot Noirs were expressive and rich, marked by hints of berry fruit and cherry.

Laurent-Perrier Vintage 2006 has a light yellow appearance and a subtle nose of fresh pineapple and dried apricots. The palate is very balanced, with hints of white peach flavour peeking through - well-roundedness is the real making of the 2006 vintage and it's what makes this a great Champagne.

Grape Varieties: 50% Chardonnay, 50% Pinot Noir

“This newcomer in magnum is still in its infancy, even dormant to a certain degree. Behind a cool façade there is rich, opulent fruitiness and plenty of muscle to build upon. Stylish, pastry and vanilla-lined, deep and layered nose. Wide, fleshy, round palate, well in balance. Velvet-textured and long, appears built to last.”

“50% Chardonnay, 50% Pinot Noir. Dosage 9 g/l.
Smells rather like roast chicken on the nose, complete with sage stuffing. A bit woody on the palate. Crisp but a bit ordinary for the price. (JH)”

“Relatively light impact but everything is well balanced. Very neat. Absolutely correct without being in any way a standout. Impressive impact on the finish.”
