Notes from the Winemaker:

While champagne shows the character of a specific harvest, non-vintage brut exemplifies the style of a particular House. Freshness, elegance and balance, all of which are typical of Laurent-Perrier's wines, are found in the Brut L-P year after year. Chardonnay, is the dominant grape variety and its proportion is unusually high for a non-vintage champagne blend, being double the average. The blend is made of wines from more than 55 crus or villages and between 10 and 20% of reserve wines are used. Brut L-P is aged on its lees for approximately three years and only a very light dosage is used to preserve its balance and natural freshness. The colour is a pale golden hue, with fine and persistent bubbles. The nose is fresh and delicate, showing good complexity with its hints of citrus and white fruit. With its elegant style, Brut L-P has led the way in making champagne the ideal apéritif. Perfectly balanced, with crisp flavours and finesse, it is also an ideal companion for fish, poultry and white meat. Fresh and supple upon entry with rounded and expressive flavours from which the fruit progressively emerges. Good balance and length.

Ratings & Reviews


90 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The Laurent-Perrier NV Brut is a blend of 50% Chardonnay, 35% Pinot Noir and 15% Meunier, and is based on 2009 plus 15-30% reserve wines from two or three vintages. Citrus colored, this signature LP has a refined, fresh and elegant nose with brioche and delicate citrus flavors. Lean, refined and elegant on the palate, this is a dry and silky textured, vivacious, and perfectly fresh and balanced aperitif Champagne. It does not have the opinion-dividing thrill and tension of the Ultra Brut, but will probably find more friends." - Stephan Reinhardt (29th Jun 2016)

90 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"A harmonious Champagne, with a vibrant backbone of acidity and a well-knit mix of poached pear, lemon preserves, smoke and toast. Very accessible. Drink now through 2018. 22,000 cases imported." - AN (Oct 31, 2016)

89 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous:
"(50% Chardonnay, 35% Pinot Noir and 15% Pinot Meunier; 12 g/l dosage; L63PA113459): Light gold. Aromas of ripe citrus and orchard fruits, with suggestions of green tea and honey in the background. Supple and open-knit, with pliant pear and orange flavors picking up a touch of bitter herbacity with air. Closes on a spicy note, with good energy and a lingering note of white pepper." - Josh Raynolds (Jan 2015)
