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 opting to blend its Brut NV champagne with a majority of Chardonnay, Laurent-Perrier is expressing its difference and asserting the signature ‘House’ style of freshness, lightness, and elegance. The La Cuvée blend was launched in autumn 2017 replacing the previous NV. The aim with the new blend was to increase the Chardonnay content and make a champagne with lightness and elegance from the Chardonnay yet not lose some of the structure and fruit of the Pinot Noir and Meunier. A fascinating champagne resulted, the wonderful fruit and lightness of Chardonnay with quite a lot of that creamy texture and underneath you see the structure of the red grapes; lightness and elegance perfectly sums up this champagne.

Essi Avellan MW
“Laurent-Perrier is launching a new and improved version of its iconic non-vintage Brut L-P. La Cuvée is the result of 15 years of development, which has meant an increasing number of villages entering the cuvée. The first blend is a mix of 2012 and 2009 vintages, both excellent years. The style is very much as before but one can sense an increased layer of depth and smooth richness. What is most laudable is the impeccable harmony the wine possesses already upon release. Such a pleasurable, round and energetic champagne. ”

“Smoky reductive nose with real depth and lively age. Serious champagne, though at the full price it's quite expensive. ”

“'La Cuvée' is a rebrand for their non-vintage, I gather. There’s a lot of savoury umami character on the nose and chewy green citrus fruit. Long and fragrant to finish. (RH)”
