95 Boasting the texture of billowing silk, this Chardonnay-dominant brut cuvée openly appeals with aromas of buttery brioche, lime blossom, and ripe peach-the latter of which Laurent-Perrier forms a bridge on the palate between the creaminess of pear frangipane and lemon sherbet and the freshness of lemongrass and yuzu, edged by a light stroke of chalk.

93 Points This is lovely, the aromas and flavors run long into the finish with notes of light butter biscuits, subtle cooked apples and peaches. It's full yet balanced and long. Lovely texture. Lots of flavor and polished textured bubbles. The base in the current release is 2016 vintage. 50% chardonnay, 35% pinot noir and 15% pinot meunier.

91 Points The NV Champagne La Cuvée Brut is aged for 4 years and sees 8 grams per liter dosage. The nose is very pretty and elegant, with floral aromas of brioche and sweet orchard fruits. Fresh with apricot, it is expressive of its lovely Chardonnay character. The palate is soft and approachable, and in line with the nose. This is a great aperitif style to begin with. Drink now or over the following 10 years.

91 Points As an indication of its complexity, this Champagne is a blend of more than 100 different wines. This non vintage cuvée is rich, with a hint of toast contrasting with the wine’s mineral texture. White fruits give a vivid character to the aftertaste.

90 Points Sourced from over 100 Grand Cru villages, this well balanced and delicious Champagne is appley and creamy, with richer apricot and brioche towards the finish giving a soft impression.

The wine comes from the purest grape juice and it alone allows Laurent-Perrier to craft 'La Cuvée', a champagne of great finesse and a beautiful freshness obtained after a long ageing process in our cellars.

Pale gold in color. Fine bubbles feed a persistent mousse. A delicate nose with hints of fresh citrus and white flowers. The wine’s complexity is expressed in successive notes like vine peach and white fruits notes. A perfect balance between freshness and delicacy with fruity flavors very present on the finish.

This fresh and pure wine is perfect for an apéritif. Its citrus and white fruits notes and its remarkable balance supported by a subtle effervescence, make it an ideal accompaniment to poultry and the finest fish. Winemaker Description.
