La Cuvee is pale gold with steady streams of fine bubbles. The nose has aromas of citrus, underpinned by hints of white flowers. A perfect balance between freshness & finesse, the palate is full-bodied, complex & creamy, displaying length to finish.
Champagne Laurent-Perrier was founded in 1812 but the story is really one of modern renaissance. In 1939 the House was sold to the de Nonancourt family & Madame de Nonancourt passed control of the House to her son Bernard in 1948. Bernard had a modern vision of a champagne style that could be enjoyed any time with a cleaner palate. He brought innovation & a pioneering spirit to the House, so the Laurent-Perrier style of elegance & freshness was born. His legacy lives on today through his daughters.
Champagne terroir covers a roughly 34,000 ha of vineyards, each one bringing together a combination of climate, soil & terrain. The production zone AOC was defined & delimited by a law passed in 1927. The terroir has two major features: northerly latitude & dual climate. The subsoil is mainly limestone with the addition of chalk & marl. This subsoil has good drainage & also adds that mineral taste to certain Champagnes. The moderately steep terrain offers perfect exposure to sunlight with added drainage.
La Cuvee is Laurent-Perrier's signature champagne, so called as it is crafted using the purest grape juice obtained during the gentle first pressing. La Cuvee defines the House style and serves as an ideal introduction to our wines with its characteristic lightness, freshness and elegance.
