Vinification

Laurent Perrier Rose Brut NV Champagne is famous for its highly expressive bouquet, from the very careful preservation of the grape's natural fresh red fruit aromas, and salmon pink colour which stems from the maceration techniques used. One of the rare Rosé champagnes using the maceration technique giving extraordinary depth and freshness that has made it the benchmark for Rosé champagne around the world. Revered by wine-lovers for its flavour, and by aesthetes for the beauty of its 17th century-style bottle dating back to Henry V, the cuvée Rosé Brut is one of the stars in the Laurent-Perrier range. Meticulous sorting of the grape bunches (100% Pinot Noir) and controlled maceration help extract the colour and reveal the full aromatic richness of the pinot noir grapes.

Tasting Notes

Intensely fruity flavours begin clean and well-defined upon entry, the wine then opens up to provide a melange of flavours consisting of fresh strawberries, raspberries and wild cherries. It has great length and is rounded and supple on the finish.
