Laurent Perrier Ultra Brut Champagne
Like to try a Champagne that stands apart from the others? Laurent-Perrier Ultra Brut Champagne is a pioneer in the Brut Nature category, launched in 1981. At the time of launch it was a Champagne like no other, described as having an understated style, skilful simplicity and a real finesse, all with no added sugar. The Ultra Brut blend combines only Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes and made exclusively from very ripe harvests. This is key in order to yield grapes which are high in sugar but low in acidity enabling the finished Champagne to have the right balance of flavours without any dosage.
This is a wonderful ultra dry Champagne that has been aged for a minimum of six years, so it has been developing and perfecting itself for some time! Perfect Champagne for fans of a crisp and delicate dry sparkling wine, it is great as a light aperitif but also goes brilliantly with seafood and sushi.
About the Brand
Laurent-Perrier is one of the few Champagne house which are still family owned. Bernard's two daughters now oversee the running of the business, carrying on the work that Bernard did to produce one of the best Champagne brands.
Laurent-Perrier was founded in 1812 by André Michel but it was his cellar master Eugene Laurent, who ran it with his wife, Mathilde Emilie Perrier. After Eugene's death in 1887, Mathilde combined the two names and Laurent-Perrier was born.

Airy and delicate upon entry, yet surprisingly long. Floral and fruit flavours combine with mineral notes to give a wine that is pure without being austere. The finish is long and leaves the palate clean.
