Product Details

Description

Fresh and vibrant, this pale lemon gold coloured Champagne offers aromas of citrus notes, lemon zest, blossom, and toast. The palate is medium-bodied, creamy, fine, and elegant, with flavours of white peach, grapefruit, and lemon, complemented by a hint of brioche. This exceptional wine from one of Champagne’s finest producers is perfect for special occasions and pairs beautifully with cheese. I recommend pairing this Champagne with very creamy rich cheeses like Brillat-Savarin, Winslade, or La Tur. The high fat content in the cheeses will coat your mouth with creamy goodness, while the fine bubbles and dry acidity refresh your palate and set you up for another bite!

History and Winemaking

Back in 1881, Cellar Master Eugène Laurent inherited the Alphonse Pierlot Champagne House, and with it, the dream of creating exceptional champagnes. To lay the groundwork for greatness, he secured prime houses and land to establish a complete estate. In Bouzy, Tours-sur-Marne, and Ambonnay, he carefully acquired the finest vineyards.

Eugène’s vision was brought to life in Tours-sur-Marne, a charming village ideally located at the convergence of the Marne department’s three main wine regions: the Montagne de Reims, the Vallée de la Marne, and the Côte des Blancs. This picturesque village is one of the prestigious ‘Grand Cru’ areas, encompassing 17 Champagne villages of unmatched distinction. Thus, the Domaine Laurent-Perrier found its home and has been crafting extraordinary champagnes ever since.
