6 x Laurent-Perrier La Cuvee NV (75cl)
La Cuvee is Laurent-Perrier’s new signature champagne, so called as it is crafted using the purest grape juice obtained during the gentle first pressing. Launched in the UK in April 2017, La Cuvee will replace the Brut NV.
La Cuvee defines the House style and serves as an ideal introduction to our wines with its characteristic lightness, freshness and elegance.
A blend of 55%* Chardonnay, double the usual amount in Champagne, giving the wine its unique personality.
Very long ageing in Laurent-Perrier’s cellars ensures perfect maturity upon release.
La Cuvee is pale gold with a steady stream of fine bubbles. The nose has delicate aromas of citrus fruits, underpinned by hints of white flowers.
A perfect balance between freshness and finesse, the palate is full-bodied, complex and creamy, displaying great length on the finish.
La Cuvee’s finesse is due to the predominance of Chardonnay (55%*), which is blended with smaller amounts of Pinot Noir (35%*) and Meunier (10%*).
* Exact proportions may vary slightly from one cuvee to another. They are shown here as a guideline.
It is a blend of over 100 crus and up to 30% reserve wines to ensure a consistent House style. It is aged in the cellars for a minimum of four years before being released as it reaches perfect maturity.
