Laurent-Perrier Cuvee Rose Brut
The best selling rose Champagne in the world, Laurent-Perrier’s Cuvee Rose Brut is one of the few roses still made by the saignee method. To emphasize this traditional technique, the Champagne is elegantly showcased in an embossed bottle that is a reproduction of those used in the late 17th century. Deep orange-pink color, with a fine bead, the first impression on the palate is that of fresh fruit, followed by a full-bodied yet elegant mouthfeel.
Laurent-Perrier is one of Champagne's most famous houses, founded in 1812 in the village of Tours-sur-Marne. Its Chardonnay-dominant house style is known for its finesse and elegance. Like Veuve Clicquot, Laurent Perrier's success is due to a widow, in this case Mathilde Emilie Perrier. After the vineyards were established, the original owner gave control of the company to his cellarmaster Eugene Laurent and his wife Perrier. After his death in 1887, Perrier took over the house, naming it for herself and her late husband. Under her leadership, Laurent-Perrier became one of Champagne's most successful companies in the years leading up to World War I.
