Its creation is contemporary like that of Nouvelle Cuisine. Similar to this lighter, purer way of preparing food, Ultra Brut Laurent-Perrier appears without make-up, in its natural form. It is a brut nature champagne, that is, with no dosage, and making it requires considerable know-how. Its style appeals to a growing number of wine-lovers who discover with it many new ways of enjoying champagne.

Winery Tasting Notes
Grape varieties: chardonnay 55 %, pinot noir 45 %.
Made exclusively from grapes from very ripe harvests and blended from fifteen crus or villages with an average rating of 97 %.
Very pale and crystal-bright in colour.
Intense and complexe on the nose, with a wide range of aromas, including citrus and white fruit and flowers, such as honeysuckle. The combined effect gives off an impression of freshness, much like ocean air.
Airy and delicate, yet surprisingly long. Floral and fruit flavours combine with mineral notes to give a wine that is pure without being austere. The finish is long and leaves the palate clean.
Serve between 8°C and 10°C. Its delicate finish, which leaves the palate fresh, and its subtle balance make this the most versatile champagne in Laurent-Perrier’s range. Its capacity to bring out flavours in food makes it ideal from apéritif to dessert. This champagne pairs well with caviar or foie gras, seafood or oysters – and even accompanying a cigar at the end of a meal.
