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)”

    "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.
