Golden yellow colour, with green highlights with a steady stream of fine and persistent bubbles. The initial aroma is marked by an attractive fruity character which then evolves displaying notes of ripe fruits and honey (acacia honey). Initial impressions are of vivacity and a fine mousse. As its character is gradually revealed, there is a sense of complexity, depth of flavour and a still youthful freshness. The long finish is marked by persistent notes of yellow stone fruits (mirabelle plum). Chardonnay (50%), Pinot Noir (50%) Laurent-Perrier is selective when declaring vintages rarely declaring them and only in the very best years with a unique character. Thus the Brut Millesime (Vintage Brut) is an exceptional wine and while it maintains the signature style of the House’s wines, it reflects the unique characteristics of the vintage year. Laurent-Perrier’s millesimes have excellent ageing capacity.
