Description & Technical Information
-
Although originally founded in 1812, the name Champagne Laurent-Perrier was not conceived until 1964. It was Bernard de Nonancourt who initiated Laurent-Perrier's rise to world fame. One of Champagne's most important figures in the 20th century, he officially took over in 1948 after a three-year apprenticeship at the Houses of Delamotte and Lanson. In his 62-year tenure, production grew from 80,000 bottles annually to over eight million. Under de Nonancourt, Laurent-Perrier were the first House to use stainless-steel vats and the first House to create both a zero dosage champagne (Ultra Brut) and a multi-vintage prestige cuvée (Grand Siècle). Sadly, de Nonancourt passed away in 2010 and Laurent-Perrier is now managed by his two daughters, Alexandra and Stéphanie alongside Cellar Master Michel Fauconnet and has become one of the region's largest producers, they are perhaps best known for Cuvée Rosé, the most recognised rosé champagne on the planet.

In May 2018, Laurent-Perrier announced the release of a brand new champagne: Blanc de Blancs Brut Nature NV. Being a Chardonnay-dominant house, it was only a matter of time before Laurent-Perrier launched an all-Chardonnay cuvée. Notably, the champagne is a Brut Nature (zero dosage was added post-disgorgement), making it the only Grande Marque Blanc de Blancs with no dosage.

The first release is based on equal proportions of the 2012 and 2013 vintages. The high 40% reserve wine content contains wine from several previous vintages, with a significant contribution from 2009. Both the base and reserve wines originate from the same Grand and Premier Cru vineyards: Chouilly and Cramant from the Côte des Blancs and Villers-Marmery from the Montagne de Reims.

Technical Information:
Vineyards: 100% Grand & Premier Cru | Côte des Blancs: Chouilly & Cramant, Montagne de Reims: Villers-Marmery
Grape Varieties: 100% Chardonnay
Base Vintage: 2012 and 2013
Reserve Wine: 40%
Ageing: 4 years on the lees
Dosage: 0 g/l

Tasting Note: Has initial Chardonnay aromatics, some small hints of evolution on the nose and lots of ripe apples and an underlying layer of chalkiness. The palate has the freshness, the chalk and the ripe apples show again with hints of mango, pineapple with nice layers of spice. Seems very balanced, not crying out for attention.

William Kelley
“A new cuvée from Laurent-Perrier, the inaugural NV Blanc de Blancs Nature represents the first time this house, for all its emphasis on Chardonnay, has ever released a blanc de blancs. Offering up aromas of citrus fruit, green apple, oyster shell and warm bread, the wine is medium to full-bodied, lively and precise, with a bright spine of ripe acidity and a delicately chalky finish. It's a blend of the 2012 and 2013 vintages with reserve wine from 2009, and chef de cave Michel Fauconnet told me that he had sought precision from the Chardonnay of the Montagne de Reims and texture from that of the Côte de Blancs.”

“The nose is promising in its layered age-complexed tones. Here, L-P:s hallmark classy whiffs of toast meet delicate floral fragrancy. Underneath, there is bright lemony fruitiness with hints of rich butter and butterscotch characters. Still, the palate is what really impresses with its fine creaminess combined too an amazing acid line and linearity. The finish is purely fruity and feisty with a mineral bite cleansing the palate. ”

“Bottle. Disgorged December 2018. They are looking specifically for aroma – Villers-Marmery and Tours-sur-Marne. No dosage. 60% 2012, 40% reserve, mainly 2009. Launched in UK 20 June 2019. Priced the same as the rosé retail, and very slightly more than the rosé in the on trade.
Greenish lemon yellow. Tiny little bead. 2012 is very concentrated because it was such as a small harvest and 2009 had lots of fruit and freshness. They don’t want a hard finish since there’s zero dosage. Lightly reductive and very Laurent-Perrier on the nose. Tight and delicate. The same texture as Grand Siècle. Very long and tightly knit. A little brother for Grand Siècle? Splits the difference between a house and a grower’s champagne.”

    "Everything is good, my work now is to find which ones are very good." Laurent-Perrier had a successful harvest in 2018, a year which Chef de Cave Michel Fauconnet believes will most certainly produce a stunning vintage champagne and hopefully a strong Alexandra Rosé as well.
