Laurent-Perrier Rose Cuvee Alexandra Grand Siecle 1997
External Reviews for Laurent-Perrier Rose Cuvee Alexandra Grand Siecle
A vinous style racy and austere displaying dried berry pencil shaving and citrus aromas and flavors. It s full of finesse and bracing on the finish but the intensity is there. Best with food. Drink now through 2012. Wine Spectator.
There have only been 5 vintages of this Champagne made. The first was created as a gift from winery proprietor, Bernard de Nonancourt, to his eldest daughter for her wedding in 1982. This Rosé is 80% Pinot Noir and 20% Chardonnay. The depth of fruit is astounding recalling strawberry and currants. A Champagne for the ages.
