Intensely fruity flavours, clean, well-defined and slightly sharp, The undisputed star of the pink fizz market, Laurent-Perrier Rosé remains No.1 in the pink Champagne field thanks to its consistently appealing light, elegant fruit and delicate mousse. The iconic dumpy bottle with its pink foil and label is instantly recognisable on the shelves and in the fridges of the world's best bars and hotels.
There are plenty of fine examples of Cuvée rosé champagne out there, but only one with the distinctive personality of Laurent-Perrier.
The house carefully selects grapes from its best plots on the estate, blending pinot noir and chardonnay to build an expression that oozes red berry notes. Its light minerality is all down to the Bouzy soil, only found in this special Grand Cru.
The colour is a deepish salmon pink, reminiscent of a winter's sunset. The bead is fine and persistent.
A complex and well-balanced nose that is reminiscent of orange peel and small red berry fruit. There are some lingering hints of yellow stone fruit (peaches and apricots) and it finishes with subtle mineral aromas.
Full-bodied from the start, with clear flavours of black cherries. Powerful and long-lasting, with a finish that combines ripe red fruit with a firm grip.
Excellent match with game birds and a cranberry or bilberry sauce and it has sufficient power and depth to go with even stronger flavours
