Press / Wine Critic's Reviews
 
The best selling rosé Champagne in the world, Laurent-Perrier is one of the few rosés still made by the saignée method. To emphasize this traditional technique, the Champagne is bottled in an embossed bottle that is a reproduction of those used in the late 17th century.

The Cuvée Rosé Laurent-Perrier was created in 1968 using bold, innovative ‘savoir-faire’ methods learned from production of still wines called ‘Coteaux Champenois.’ Perfected at each stage of its making, the Cuvée Rosé is now the benchmark in its category. Held in an elegant wine bottle inspired by King Henri IV, this rosé champagne has been widely acknowledged for its consistent high quality for more than 40 years.

Laurent-Perrier’s technical facilities are dedicated to the making of the Cuvée Rosé. Grapes from carefully selected plots are then meticulously sorted and destemmed before going into the vats. Controlled maceration — lasting from 48 to 72 hours depending on the harvest — helps the extraction of color and the development of the full aromatic richness of the Pinot Noir. It is aged in the cellars for at least four years.

Tasting Notes

Elegant, with color changing naturally from a pretty raspberry hint to salmon-pink.

Precise and very crisp. Wide range of small red fruits: strawberries, red currants, raspberries and black cherries. Its amazing freshness is the dominating note.

Intensely fruity flavors, clean, well-defined and slightly sharp, the wine then opens up to provide an impression of plunging into a basket of freshly picked red berries: strawberries, Morello cherries, black currants and raspberries. The wine is supple and rounded on the finish.

Serving

The Cuvée Rosé Laurent-Perrier is a delicious apéritif. This cuvée, thanks to its aromatic character, allows various food and wine pairings. It matches well with raw fishes (marinated red mullets and tartare of tuna), grilled prawns, fine charcuterie (such as Italian prosciutto), duck, lamb and creamy cheeses such as Chaource. The Cuvée Rosé is also an extraordinary match for red fruit desserts. The more daring will try it with Asian — even Indian — cuisine.

The Blend

100% Pinot Noir.

Blended from 10 different ‘crus’ (or villages) situated mainly in the South and North areas of the Montagne de Reims — including the famous Côte de Bouzy – notably from the finest crus of Ambonnay, Bouzy, Louvois and Tours-sur-Marne.


Ratings & Reviews

92 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"This wine is both rich and soft. It combines the ripeness of red-fruit flavors and a creamy texture with a crisp edge of citrus acidity. A tight tannic edge gives it shape, adds to its richness and provides an intense, long-lasting afertaste. Drink now." - Roger Voss (8/1/2018)


92 Points - James Suckling:
"Shows a linear line of crisp acidity and vivid fruit of dried strawberries and orange peel. Full-bodied, tight and focused with a bright finish. Fruity yet vivid. Commanding. Drink now." (May 13, 2018)

92 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"The fine knit and balance of this elegant rosé sparkler recommends it as an aperitif, but the firm frame of acidity, the subtle richness of the smoky underpinning, and the flavors of baked strawberry, pastry cream and candied orange peel recommend it to food as well. Try this with Peking duck. Drink now through 2022. 9,600 cases imported." - AN (Nov 30, 2017)

93 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The NV Cuvée Rosé Brut is 100% Pinot Noir based on 2008 (90%). The color is an intense orange-colored pink and the nose offers beautifully subtle, but also deep, intense flavors of ripe and macerated Pinot Noir and lemon. There is also great purity and finesse on the structured palate. The finish is fresh and reveals a perfect fruit. This Rosé drinks almost like a light red wine." - Stephan Reinhardt (Jun 29, 2016)

92 Points - Vinous:
"(100% saignée Pinot Noir): Vivid orange-pink. An expressive, spice-accented bouquet evokes fresh raspberry, orange pith, white flowers and ginger, with a hint of rhubarb adding an earthy flourish. Sappy and broad in the mouth, offering intense red fruit and bitter citrus flavors underscored by chalky mineral and white pepper notes. Rich yet lively rosé with excellent closing thrust and floral persistence." - Josh Raynolds (Jan 2015)
