“La Cuvée”, is a champagne of great finesse and a beautiful freshness obtained after a long ageing process in our cellars. A blend of over 50% Chardonnay, between 30% and 35% Pinot Noir and rounded out with 10% and 15% Meunier. A pale gold colour. 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 such as those of vine peach and white fruit. A perfect balance between freshness and delicacy with fruity flavours very present on the finish.
The House of Laurent Perrier was founded in 1812 by André Michel Pierlot. A few years down the line, the Champagne house was bequeathed to the cell master Eugéne Laurent. When Eugene passed in 1887 with no heir, his widow Mathilde Emilie Perrier took control of the business. Mathilde combined the two names and used her business skills to grow the Champagne house into the Laurent Perrier we know today.
The current cell master Michel Fauconneth has spent his entire career working with Laurent Perrier at every stage of production. Michel in his own words said, “My job is to make those vins de plaisir that are perfectly attuned to the spirit of the House of Laurent-Perrier.” You can tell he takes this to heart. The level of excellence in a glass is proven time and time again.
