Why buy it?

The 1999 vintage began with frosts but ended in the best possible way with a splendid flowering. An excellent product came out of it, one of the cornerstones of the Maison Laurent Perrier. Champagne with extraordinary capabilities, one of the Maison’s Master Classes, undoubtedly one of the best Champagnes around. This bottle was deliberately left to age for more years than normal on its lees in order to maximize the characteristics of the vintage. Absolutely to try.

Description

History

Laurent Perrier is a maison founded in 1812 by André Michel Pierlot, while the name derives from the descendant Mathilde Emilie Nonancourt. The company’s expansion dates back to the second post-war period and is due to Bernard de Nonancourt, who, by increasing its production, reached 147 countries around the world. The vineyards of the Maison are grafted onto the best plots of Bouzy, Amonnay and Tours sur Marne, where the Crus of Montagne de Reims and Cote des Blancs expand. Each of the vineyards suitable for the production of Champagne has been cultivated with respect for tradition and the harvested grapes are vinified separately, so as to highlight every single characteristic of the terroir. To conclude, the Maison Laurent Perrier has become a symbol of elegance, finesse, quality and has managed to export “The French art of living” to all parts of the world, however the fame of the Maison is due to the majestic Champagne produced.

Grapes used

Pinot Noir 48%

Chardonnay 52%

Production method

After a soft pressing in order to extract the highest quality free-run must, after which it is produced according to the so-called methode champenoise or classic method, a method in which the wine essentially undergoes two different fermentations: the first, the alcoholic one (which it shares with the rest of the wines) takes place in vats for fermentation; the second instead takes place directly in the bottle and ensures that during this second procedure, thanks to the particular yeasts, the wine also develops carbon dioxide (which will then give rise to the famous bubbles when uncorked), followed by a rest on the lees for about 20 years and finally disgorgement with a very low dosage of sugar.

Alcohol content

12.5%

Tasting notes

At sight, the product has a gold color with brilliant shades. The perlage is fine and persistent. On the nose floral notes especially of hawthorn, there are also citrus notes of lemon, clementine and grapefruit. In the mouth it is fine, counterbalanced by a fresh and sharp acidity, there are also very present notes of red fruit such as strawberries. The finish is also long and very fresh.

Possible combinations

Champagne to share with special people to toast in the best moments, I see it very well in combination with salmon fish carpaccio or tuna sashimi, it is also perfect in the company of a fruit-based cake.
