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
The House of Laurent-Perrier was founded in 1812 by André Michel Pierlot and took the name Vve Laurent-Perrier when Mathilde Emilie Perrier, the widow of Eugène Laurent, combined the two family names after she decided to expand the business.
Eugénie Hortense Laurent, her daughter, inherited the House in 1925 and sold it to Marie-Louise Lanson de Nonancourt in 1939. During WWII, Marie-Louise Lanson de Nonancourt ran the business while two of her sons, Maurice and Bernard, joined the French Resistance.
In 1945, Bernard de Nonancourt began an exacting apprenticeship, learning every aspect of winemaking from vine to cellar, before his appointment in October 1948 as Chairman and Chief Executive.
Fired by a passion for champagne, a respect for traditional values and, most importantly, for people, Bernard de Nonancourt inspired Laurent-Perrier with his independent spirit and creative audacity.
He established privileged working relationships with the grape growers and cleverly combined innovation and tradition. He created the signature Laurent-Perrier style of freshness, lightness and elegance and developed a unique range of champagnes which are today exported to more than 160 countries worldwide.

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.
