The Oddbins Take

Of all the Champagne houses, Laurent-Perrier has a certain knack of getting a distinctly different voice across on all its incarnations. Laurent-Perrier boasts an enviable extended family (its Ultra Brut, for example is best in its class) and this vintage version follows in that long line of enviables. Every drop of this one comes from Grand Cru vineyards: honeyed notes ride upon an elegant and dry body; while richness and complexity are never lost in the shuffle.

Jane MacQuitty in The Times, 14/2/15: "A dazzling, 50-50 blend of chardonnay and pinot noir from one of my favourite houses, and from one of the top champagne vintages in the past two decades… This stylish, tastebud-tingling bubbly, with citrus zest, toasted almonds and buttered brioche to the fore, makes the perfect Valentine's Day tipple for those who dislike pink champagne. Glorious now but even better cellared until 2017 and beyond, when you will get less sparkle and richer, nuttier flavours."
Given the high quality of the base wines that year, Laurent-Perrier decided to ‘declare’ the 2006 vintage and produce an unblended Champagne from that year. As in other recent vintages it is blend of 50% Chardonnay and 50% Pinot Noir, the former from the Grand Cru villages of the Côte des Blancs and the latter from the Montagne de Reims.
