Champagne Laurent Perrier Cuvée Rosé Brut NV

Champagne, FranceLa Cuvée Rosé, the world's top selling rosé champagne, is as recognizable for its distinctive bottle shape as for its smouldering taste. Entirely pinot noir, this was sourced from 10 villages in Montagne de Reims, primarily Grand Crus. It spent up to three days in contact with skins before bleeding off (saignée), and spent a minimum of 60 months on lees before a disgorgement around 9 g/L. Wild strawberries, raspberries, pomegranate, cherry blossoms fill the complete, dense, and subtly creamy palate, with a generous lees cushion, offset by poised, humming acidity. There's a lovely chalky underlay here, shimmering under the red fruit above, and lingering on the lengthy finish. For a wine of this reach, it certainly achieves what it sets out to.Tasted: 22 October 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 105.99 BCLS BC 245.99 1500 BCLS AB 91.35 select private retailers ON 99.95 orderacase.com ON 174.55 1500 The Beer Guy Producer: Champagne Laurent-PerrierDistributors: Appellation Wine Marketing
