Product guide note

Normally Champagne is a blend of wines made in a number of different years. However, when conditions have been very good the producers make Champagne with wine exclusively from that year, called Vintage Champagne. This vintage rosé is complex with floral aromas and notes of crisp raspberry and strawberry fruit flavours.

Production information

Producer: Laurent Perrier

The house was set up by Eugene Laurent in Tours-Sur-Marne, and after marrying Mathilde-Emilie Perrier, the company name was born. Marie-Louise de Nonancourt, a member of another great Champagne family, Lanson, acquired the house in 1938 after the owners died. In 1948 her son, Bernard, who had spent much of the Second World War fighting in the Resistance, took over the business and began the process of rebuilding it after the war.

Production note

Grapes from specially selected plots and vineyard sites were hand sorted and de-stemmed, prior to short maceration for the Pinot Noir. When blended with some delicate Chardonnay this produced a wine of gentle colour and uniquely complex aroma. The wine is aged in our cellars for at least six years before disgorgement.
