Notes from the Winemaker:

Laurent-Perrier Ultra Brut is Champagne in its most natural form. In 1980, Laurent-Perrier reintroduced the traditional Champagne concept of brut nature, a non-dosage Champagne that requires considerable know-how to the craft. Its style appeals to a growing number of wine lovers who discover with it many new ways of pairing food with Champagne.

With nearly equal parts of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, Ultra Brut is made exclusively with grapes from very ripe harvests. Selection is rigorous to ensure that only grapes with both high sugar levels and low acidity are used. This is essential as there is no dosage added. The second fermentation on yeast lasts at least four years.

Appearance:
Limpid, bright yellow with a fine bead.

Nose:
Intense and forward, with citrus and honeysuckle notes and a unique mineral component, oftentimes likened to a fresh sea breeze.

Taste:
Surprising depth and power, with a purity and concentration of flavor all its own. Amazingly well balanced and absolutely bone dry.

Ratings & Reviews



94 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
This Champagne has the necessary bottle age for its bone-dry character to be softened and given great complexity. The wine's freshness and apple fruits are palpable but they have attractive nutty hints that make this fine bottling ready to drink.
