The 2008 vintage champagne Laurent-Perrier is a sparkling wine resulting from a blend of 50% Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs with as terroirs, Chouilly, Cramant, Avize and Le Mesnil-Sur-Oger, and 50 % Pinot Noir from the Montagne de Reims with Ay, Verzy, Verzenay, Tours-sur-Marne, Louvois and Bouzy as terroirs. The year 2008 was characterized by a cold but not freezing winter and a gloomy and rainy spring. The harvest begins in mid-September in dry and cool weather, resulting in grapes in perfect sanitary condition, with very fine Chardonnays and Pinots Noirs. These high-quality grapes reveal a magnificent aromatic richness which presaged an exceptional vintage.
To the eye, a white gold color with a slight effervescence.
A mineral and chalky nose offering elegant aromas of citrus and white fruits.
On the palate, lively attack, deep and fresh wine with hints of bitter orange and lemon.
The Laurent Perrier Brut vintage 2008 goes perfectly with seafood, sushi but also with a young Parmesan or a pata negra ham.
