Description

Laurent-Perrier selects the grapes used to make its Brut with special care. They are harvested manually and only the best of the press-juices are selected. In opting to blend its Brut champagne with a majority of Chardonnay, the rarest grape variety in the Champagne region, Laurent-Perrier was expressing its difference and asserting the signature "house" style of freshness, lightness and elegance.

It was during the 1950s that Laurent-Perrier, a trail-blazer in this respect, decided to install stainless-steel tanks for its wines. When the first fermentation is carried out at low temperature, stainless-steel tanks help the must to retain its freshness and preserve the complexity of its aromas. The tanks were a major contributor in forging the House style. Pioneering Laurent-Perrier Brut became a genuine champagne for the aperitif.
