Laurent Perrier Alexandra Rose
Bernard de Nonancourt took the opportunity of his elder daughter Alexandra’s
marriage in 1987 to create this vintage rosé champagne, which expresses the very
highest standards of the House. Laurent-Perrier, which also produces the benchmark non-vintage rosé champagne, was destined to produce a luxury cuvée rosé, an exclusive and rare wine which occupies
a unique niche in its range.
Varieties: Approximately 80 % Pinot Noir, 20 % Chardonnay.
Villages: Some of the most prestigious Champagne villages, or crus, such as
Ambonnay, Bouzy, and Verzenay for Pinot Noir, and Avize, Cramant, and le Mesnilsur-
Oger for Chardonnay.
While vintage champagne shows the character of a specific harvest, non-vintage
brut exemplifies the style of a particular House. Freshness, elegance and balance,
all of which are typical of Laurent-Perrier’s wines, are found in the Brut L-P year
Only the best grape juices are used for this wine.
Grape varieties*: chardonnay 45%, pinot noir 40%, pinot meunier 15 %.
(Chardonnay proportion is double the average in Champagne).
Crus*: 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
Laurent-Perrier is selective when declaring vintages – rarely declaring them and only in the very best years with a unique character. Thus the BRUT MILLÉSIMÉ (Vintage Brut) is an exceptional wine and while it maintains the signature style of the House’s wines, it reflects the unique characteristics of the vintage year. Laurent-Perrier’s millésimes have excellent ageing capacity.
Varietals: chardonnay 50%, Pinot Noir 50%
Crus: Pinots noirs from the Montagne de Reims: Verzy, Mailly, Verzenay, Ay, Bouzy; and Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs: Avize, Cramant, Oger, Mesnil sur Oger, Chouilly

James Suckling – Lots of biscuit aromas and a wide spectrum of fresh-citrus, candied-citrus, red-apple and red-berry notes. Mouth-filling creaminess, plus quite an imposing presence and powerful structure for an NV Brut. Long, citrus and chalky finish that’s very clean and properly dry.
