The wine has a white gold colour with a fine sparkle. The nose displays minerality and hints of citrus. On the palate the wine is balanced and sustained with a finish that is fresh with notes of lemon.
Laurent-Perrier has always selected Chardonnay as the dominant grape variety in all its white cuvées and has been a pioneer of the Brut Nature category since 1981.
By perfecting its knowledge of this style of vinification and with careful aging of this variety in stainless steel vats it has enabled Laurent-Perrier to create a Blanc de Blancs Nature.
A perfect balance between the wines of the harvest and the reserve wines is required before entering the cellar.
The base wine is from the superb 2012 vintage and comprises 60% of the blend. Unusually, cellar master Michel Fauconnet selected the reserve wines of a single year - the amazing 2009 vintage - to make up the balance.
The wine was then left to mature for six years, before being disgorged in January 2019.
After cellar ageing, the wine is disgorged without any dosage and benefits from a few more months rest in the cellars before being released on the market.
The Blanc de Blancs is a wine made for fine cuisine and can be paired with veal as well as the finest fish dishes such as seabass in salt crust or grilled squid marinated with lemon and olive oil.
