Laurent-Perrier Cuvée Rosé Brut NV
100% Pinot Noir | Alc: 12% – Crisp, Dry, Fruity & Effervescent
The Cuvée Rosé from Laurent-Perrier is the most recognized rosé champagne in the world. It is also one of the few rosés still made by the saignée method. Held in an elegant bottle inspired by King Henri IV, it has been widely acknowledged for its consistent high quality for more that 40 years, and it is the benchmark for rosé champagne around the world.
Laurent-Perrier Cuvée Rosé is truly remarkable for its highly expressive bouquet, stemming from very careful preservation of fresh fruit aromas during the wine making. Made with 100% Pinot Noir from 10 different “crus ” (or villages), from the North and South areas of the Montagne de Reims, as well as the famous Cote de Bouzy. Grapes from carefully selected plots are meticulously sorted and de-stemmed before going into the vats, and the controlled maceration helps with the color extraction and the development of the full aromatic richness of the Pinot Noir.
In its elegant bottle of late 16th century inspiration, this rosé champagne is memorable for its freshness and unique aromas of fresh-picked red berries. Intensely fruity flavors, clean and slightly sharp, the wine opens to the sensation of freshly picked red berries: strawberries, Morello cherries, black currants and raspberries. The finish is supple and rounded.
The Cuvée Rosé Laurent-Perrier is a delicious aperitif and, thanks to its aromatic character, it also allows various food and wine pairings. It matches well with raw fishes (marinated red mullets and tartare of tuna), grilled prawns, fine charcuterie (such as Italian prosciutto) duck, lamb and creamy cheeses such Chaource. The Cuvée Rosé is also an extraordinary match for red fruit desserts. The more daring will try it with Asian or Indian cuisine.

“Orange-pink in color, this dry wine has some good bottle age that has rounded the corners and allowed toast to join the red fruits and orange zest flavors. A complex background of acidity, structure and final tautness makes this wine ready to drink now” 92 Pts – Wine Enthusiast
“Pinot Noir berries are destemmed, then macerate for two to three days on the skins, providing this wine’s light color and the brisk tannins that bring to mind crushed pink peppercorns. It’s a gastronomic Champagne, austere and potent, with dark-toned flavors that leave the mouth refreshed.” 90 Pts – Wine & Spirits
“Elegant and fruity at the same time with a quick invitation from bright, pure cherryish notes and then filled out handsomely by whiffs of chalky soils and well-integrated, rich and uplifting yeast-driven scents, this wine manages to be both vigorous and layered at one and the same time. Its bubbles are insistent, finely carved and add to the early sensations of lightness and energy yet also carry the wine long into a balanced, refined finish. And its latter palate grip i
