Champagne Laurent-Perrier Overview
+
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)”

“The 2006 Millésime Brut reflects the vintage as well as the house style of Laurent-Perrier. It blends the vivacious freshness and white fruit flavors of Chardonnay with the full ripeness of Pinot Noir (50/50). Citrus-yellow in color and with a fine perlage, the 2006 opens with intense and fresh citrus aromas intermixed with white fruit, apricot, brioche and nougat flavors. Mouth-filling, round and fresh on the palate, this vintage reveals a stunning finesse and salinity in the lean and elegant, persistent and refreshing finish. This is a very well-defined and stimulatingly fresh and mineral vintage Champagne with a silky texture. A remarkably good 2006.”

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