Champagne Laurent-Perrier Ultra Brut, Champagne AOC, France

Pioneer of the Brut Nature category, Laurent-Perrier Ultra Brut* is a wine with no added sugar. It expresses the quintessential character of champagne and was known as a “great wine without sugar”. Launched in 1981, this innovation is a true illustration of the House’s know-how. Grape varietals: chardonnay 55%, Pinot Noir 45%. + Reserve wines: one or two reserve wines from a complementary year. 15 Crus are used in its composition. Zero dosage: the Crus and the grape varieties are rigorously selected to ensure that only grapes with high sugar levels and low acidity are retained. These conditions are necessary to create a finished champagne that has the required balance without any dosage. Ideal ageing of 6 years minimum. Very pale and crystal-bright in color. Intense and complex on the nose with a wide range of aromas, including fruits (citrus and white fruit), flowers (honeysuckle) and iodine notes, which give an impression of freshness.This airy and delicate wine of surprising length is characterised by high purity of taste, and a long and non-saturating finish.
