Laurent Perrier Brut Vintage 2008

LAUR225
The 2008 is considered an outstanding vintage similar to the great 1996 but arguably with better balance and great consistency. Laurent Perrier very rarely makes vintages, declaring less than one out of two years, only selecting the very best years.

Laurent-Perrier

Fired by a passion for Champagne, a respect for traditional values and, most importantly, for people, Bernard de Nonancourt inspired Laurent-Perrier with his independent spirit and creative audacity. He established privileged working relationships with the grape growers and cleverly combined innovation and tradition. He created the signature Laurent-Perrier style of freshness, lightness and elegance and developed a unique range of champagnes which are today exported to more than 160 countries worldwide.

Tasting Notes

The Vintage is white gold in colour with a fine sparkle. The nose displays both mineral and chalky notes giving way to elegant grapefruit and white fruit aromas. On the palate it is lively, the wine has depth with a persistent freshness and notes of bitter orange and lemon on the finish. Serving temperature: between 9°C and 11°C.

Food Matches

The Vintage 2008 is a true wine for the table. It pairs well with food that is tender and delicate such as shellfish, noble fish poultry and veal fillet.
