Founded in 1812, Laurent-Perrier is recognised as one of the finest of the champagne houses. At 55%, the high proportion of chardonnay in this blend is what makes it stand out from the pack. Launched in 2004, this is a relatively new brand for the champagne house. Needle-fine mousse and intense, lemon-sherbet acidity are balanced with a candied citrus finish. Elegant and angular, this champagne is an instant classic.
