Laurent Perrier La Cuvée is this famous Champagne house's brand new release, which has been 15 years in the making. Replacing the hugely popular L-P Brut NV, this impressive Champagne becomes the new flagship of the House’s style; one of purity, freshness, elegance and delicacy.
Some 100 crus now go into making La Cuvée (up from 55), with a slightly higher portion of chardonnay used, with each bottling receiving a lighter dosage of 10.5g/L (down from 12.5g/L). While we've been big fans of Laurent Perrier's L-P Brut for some time, this new offering delivers a more refined, floral, silkier and slightly creamier texture than is predecessor. A delicious Champagne that offers super value at this price.
"La Cuvée is the new, shiny, rebranded Brut NV, only just launched. In 2004 Laurent-Perrier got access to quite a large bit of good Chardonnay vineyards, and this set in motion a 13-year plan to adapt and 'enhance' the LP Brut. 55% Chardonnay, 35% Pinot Noir, 10% Pinot Meunier from 110 growers. Base vintage 2012 with 30% reserve wine. They've dropped the dosage from 12.5 g/l to 9 g/l, and the wine spends four years on the lees. Pale colour. Lemon shortbread nose, the tiniest hint of marzipan, verbena. Needle-fine mousse and intense, sharpened, lemon-sherbet acidity. Very pointed, with a bit of lemon-bon-bon sweetness on the finish. Razor-sharp finish. Elegant, angular, classic.- Tamlyn Currin, jancisrobinson.com, June 2017.
