Laurent Perrier Demi Sec NV
ASPECT Pale gold in colour with fine and persistent bubbles. AROMA Delicate and fresh, with good complexity and notes of citrus and with fruit. TASTE Fresh and supple upon entry with rounded and expressive flavours from which the fruit progressively emerges. Good balance and length. SERVING Serve between 8°C and 10°C. Brut L-P fresh and elegant style has been a major factor in the success of champagne as an apéritif. Its remarkable balance, finesse and freshness also make it the perfect match for the fine fish dishes and delicate seafood, as well as white meat and poultry. GRAPE VARIETIES Chardonnay 45%, Pinot Noir 40%, Pinot Meunier 15%. (Chardonnay proportion is double the average in Champagne.) CRUS The blend is made of wines from more than 55 crus or villages with an average vineyard rating of an impressive 94%. At least 10%, and sometimes over 20% of reserve wines are also used to ensure perfect consistency in the Brut L-P. WINE MAKING AND AGING Brut L-P is aged on its lees for approximately three years - whereas the requirement is only 15 months in Champagne. Only a very light dosage (12 grams per litre) is used to preserve its balance and natural freshness. After dosage, all Laurent-Perrier's wines are cellared for a further three months prior to shipping.
A relatively simple entry-level Champagne from an excellent house. It is a bit too delicate for me.
Slightly sweet and very fresh and light on the palate.
A very pleasant champagne, medium bodied, subtle almond and white bread hints, citrus fruits are apparent, pears, well balanced and not too intense in acidity like some champagnes can be. Thoroughly enjoyable
I have to say that Laurent-Perrier is simply not my style of Champagne. It is very light and crisp but lacks the fruity flavour that I enjoy in other non-vintage champagnes such as Moët & Chandon Brut Impérial and Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin Brut Yellow Label. Perhaps you will enjoy this much more than I did but for me this is severely overpriced.
Very vibrant, crisp, brilliantly sweet-but-not-too wine we had at the restaurant moto in chicago.

This lightly-sweet Champagne was identical to their Brut NV version until the dosage was added to the wine. This is made from equal parts Chardonnay and Pinot Noir with 20% Pinot Meunier. Just gently sweet and perfect for two in this half bottle.
Almost dry, with the freshest of apple and grapefruit characters, a lively layer of mineral and lime, and a delicate character. This is a crisply delicious, aperitif style of Champagne.
The color is a pale golden hue, with fine and persistent bubbles. The nose is fresh and delicate, showing good complexity with hints of citrus and white fruit. Its perfect balance, crispness of flavors and finesse also make it the ideal companion for fish, poultry and white meat.
The House of Laurent-Perrier was established in 1812 and is located in the heart of the Champagne region at Tours-sur-Marne, France.

Careful selection of grapes, full attention to all stages of the winemaking process and ageing of each wine, according to its needs, are the requisites for the development of the individual character of each and every wine. Laurent-Perriers's international reputation has been quality led, its Champagnes offering elegance and style throughout its varied and impressive range. Grapes : 45% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Noir, and 15% Pinot Meunier Region : France / Champagne AOC Notes : Pale golden yellow, delicate and complex citrus notes in the bouquet, confirmed on the palate of full flavour with plenty of fruit, followed by some biscuity flavours, great balance and good length. Serve : Between 8c and 12c as the perfect all round aperetif or with refined fish dishes or light seafood dishes. ABV : 12%
Its bright, shining color is a fairly deep golden hue. Its nose is intense, with a range of aromas, such as dried fruit, almonds and hazelnuts, with grilled and toasted hints. After a little aging, these will evolve to even deeper aromas of honey and pine resin. The richness of the Demi-Sec naturally calls for sweet dessert dishes, such as pastries or chocolate, enhancing them with considerable depth.
