Champagne Laurent Perrier La Cuvée Brut NV

Champagne, FranceLa Cuvée is Laurent Perrier's revamped entry-level Champagne, and a solid introduction to this house's portfolio. It's now predominantly Chardonnay (50+ percent), with pinot noir and pinot meunier playing more of a supporting role. It has a lovely, complex nose: good brioche character from aging four years on its lees; nuts from a healthy dose of reserve wines; and fresh citrus. There's good precision to the palate, though the mousse is soft and somewhat frothy. Finishes dry, even at 10 g/L residual sugar, thanks to its zesty acidity.Tasted: 31 October 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 78.85 select private retailers ON 69.99 orderacase.com QC 65.60 SAQ Producer: Champagne Laurent-PerrierDistributors: Appellation Wine Marketing
