Laurent Perrier Cuvee Rose Brut NV Champagne w/ Rose Gold Gift Cage
Includes beautiful gift packaging of a rose gold colored cage that holds and displays the bottle elegantly. See the photos above.
In its elegant bottle inspired by the times of French King Henri IV, Cuvée Rosé Laurent-Perrier soon made a name for itself and has become the most recognized rosé champagne in the world and is considered a benchmark for rosé champagne. The wine is made using nearly a dozen crus, most of them Grands Crus as well as special plots in the vineyards owned by Laurent-Perrier itself. The Pinot Noir grapes are selected for their perfect ripeness and manually sorted in Laurent-Perrier harvest stations, then destemmed to retain only the berries before they go into the maceration tanks. The maceration process lasts 48-72 hours after picking and extracts a delicate salmon pink color expressing the full aromatic breadth of the Pinot Noir grapes. Aftr bottling the wine is aged a minimum of four year in bottle before release. With 90+ scores across the board, Connoisseur's Guide gave this wine 96 points saying "Elegant and fruity at the same time with a quick invitation from bright, pure cherryish notes and then filled out handsomely by whiffs of chalky soils and well-integrated, rich and uplifting yeast-driven scents, this wine manages to be both vigorous and layered at one and the same time. Its bubbles are insistent, finely carved and add to the early sensations of lightness and energy yet also carry the wine long into a balanced, refined finish. And its latter palate grip is exactly what one should expect from the genre. While service with light foods would be our first choice, this one has the beauty to stand alone."
First off, the gift cages are gorgeous. I bought 4 and they (and the empty bottles) will be decorative items in the house. The cuvee rose brut is delicious. We had it for the first night of Hanukkah with fried chicken and latkes, and it was a delight. Looking forward to drinking it NYE with sushi. What a fun purchase!
