Brut non-vintage is always the expression of the House style and, as such, it is the signature champagne. Laurent-Perrier Brut’s style is defined by its very high proportion of Chardonnay which provides a natural purity, freshness and elegance. These essential characteristics, expressed in all our champagnes, are a good introduction to the spirit of Laurent-Perrier.
- FRA - Champagne
Chardonnay’s representation has been notched up by five percent and the dosage lowered by one gram, making for a refreshing aperitif style. A core of lemon zest, lemon blossom and white summer fruits is layered with complexity built over four years on lees: nuances of toast, butter and nuts. A fine bead and attractive, soft minerality flow into a finish with an impression of lemon sherbet from the sweetness of the dosage, offset by a cut of acidity.

Winery Tasting Notes
Chardonnay: 50% – which is a particularly high proportion, double the average in Champagne – Pinot Noir: 35 %, Pinot Meunier: 15 %.
The blend is made from more than 55 individual crus or villages, with an average cru rating of 94% (*) on the échelle des crus and up to 20% of reserve wines are also used, thus ensuring perfect consistency in the style.
Pale gold in colour with a steady flow of fine and persistent bubbles.
Delicate yet complex, fresh and well-balanced with hints of citrus and white fruits.
Well defined, subtly rounded with expressive flavours. The fruit progressively emerges to reveal a finely balanced champagne displaying great length on the finish.
Serve between 8°C and 10°C. The combination of freshness and purity of the Laurent-Perrier Brut has been a major factor in the success of champagne as an aperitif. Its citrus and white fruit notes – such as vine peach – and its remarkable balance supported by subtle bubbles make it the perfect companion for the finer moments in life. A true vin de plaisir.
