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.
Crystal clear and bright in appearance. Very fine and strong bead. The nose is intense and refined. The aromas range from flowers (honeysuckle) to citrus and white fruit.The overall impression is very fresh. Light and delicate in taste with surprising length. Fruit, flower and minerals flavours mingle to give a wonderfully pure and crisp taste.
Its suitable balance makes this wine an excellent choice for enhancing the flavours of a wide range of dishes. Goes well with seafood or goat’s cheeses, as well as spiced Chinese cooking.
Made only from vintages with the highest level of maturity, the grapes are sorted to retain only those with the optimum natural sugar levels, and the lowest acidity. The wine is aged after the second fermentation for at least four years before disgorged. Unlike other champagnes, Laurent-Perrier Ultra Brut has no ‘dosage’ whatsoever and with no sugar being added after disgorging it results in a totally dry champagne. The Blend is made from 15 principal villages with an average rating of 97% on the échelle des crus.
