Laurent-Perrier Brut Rose

The Cuvée Rosé Brut from Laurent-Perrier is one of the most recognized rosé champagne in the world, often considered the benchmark for rosé champagne.  We were lucky to get our hands on this one.  Here’s what we thought:


LABEL

Traditional, elegant, simple, clean.  What you would expect from a classic champagne

COLOR

Clean and light pink gold

AROMA

This one was berryliscious: strawberries, cherries, black currants and raspberries.

TASTE

Fruity flavors, clean and slightly sharp.  The finish is supple and rounded.

PRICE (VALUE)

At around a $79, it’s a splurge, but definitely worth trying next time you’re celebrating something and are looking for a less traditional type of champagne.

PAIRING

Light foods, seafood, chicken, light pastas

THE BOTTOM LINE

Fresh, fruity, sophisticated, enjoyable.  A classic in it’s own right.  Pick one up next time you’re celebrating.  Lot’s of fun.
