Product Description

Pale gold in colour with fine and persistent bubbles. Delicate and fresh aromas with good complexity and notes of citrus and with fruit.

Fresh and supple upon entry with rounded and expressive flavours from which the fruit progressively emerges. Good balance and length.

Brut L-P's fresh and elegant style has been a major factor in the success of champagne as an apéritif.

Chardonnay is the dominant grape variety and its proportion is unusually high for a non-vintage champagne blend, being double the average

Background: The blend is made of wines from more than 55 crus or villages with an average vineyard rating of an impressive 94%. At least 10%, and sometimes over 20% of reserve wines are also used to ensure perfect consistency in the Brut L-P.

Brut L-P is aged on its lees for approximately three years - whereas the requirement is only 15 months in Champagne. Only a very light dosage (12 grams per litre) is used to preserve its balance and natural freshness. After dosage, all Laurent-Perrier's wines are cellared for a further three months prior to shipping.
