La Cuvee is Laurent-Perrier's signature Champagne, defining the house style with its characteristic lightness, freshness and elegance.
With up to 55% Chardonnay and a minimum of four years aging in the cellars, La Cuvee is delicate yet complex with crisp notes of citrus fruit and white flowers, and great length on the finish.
Citronella and lemongrass aromatics envelop more subtle primary fruit that include peach skin and naartjie peel. Then also hints of vanilla, baked apple, marzipan and honey. The palate possesses verve and savoury grip, with elements of crushed river pebble, rock salt and flint, but also a grainy, pithy textural element akin to walnut and hard pear. There is real weight and mouth-filling substance, even at 12,5% ABV with complexity gained from lees contact and completely integrated oak. Bone dry, savoury finish.
