Champagne Laurent Perrier, Cuvée Rosé

€87.99

This Champagne is, for many, the epitome of Non Vintage Rosé. It is absolutely delicious, profound, complex, fresh but also intense and totally mesmerising. Made from 100% Pinot Noir grapes, it shows ripe red fruits on the nose and palate with a stunningly long, vanilla-cream-coated, dry finish. To savour or impress; or both.

In some respects the notion of Rosé Champagne is at odds with an attitude of purity and tradition that the appellation espouses, but the quality that Laurent Perrier achieve bottling after bottling is extraordinary. Even moreso, perhaps, because this is a house so famous for its Chardonnay. However, it has made this stunner since 1968 and we are very grateful that it is still at the top of its game. It has become an institution in its own right, transcending even the category of Champagne.

A triumph of the skills of the blender and cellar-master (as is the case in so many houses in Champagne), this wine is made from the grapes of 10 different vineyard plots that are mainly in the North and South of the Montagne de Reims in cluding the most important for Pinot Noir on the Cote de Bouzy, Ambonnay, Bouzy itself, Louvois and Tours-sur-Marne. It's not easy making rosé at this quality level, as the maceration (the amount of time that the juice stays in contact with the skins) needs to be spot-on; it's anywhere from 48 to 72 hours and depends on the harvest. The wine itself is remarkably (or maybe not remarkably, given its ridiculous quality) versatile when it comes to food pairing - if you fancy - try it with Asian and Indian cuisine, seafood - raw, grilled or pan fried - or if you're like us at all, on its own with some light something like Parma ham and a lovely view.

Could not recommend The Allotment enough. The selection is fantastic and each wine that I've drank from them has been utterly phenomenal. Delivery was no hassle and I had the wine at my door in 2 days. Couldn't have asked for a better experience.

★★★★★
Delicious and interesting range of wines delivered promptly to my door. Not far off that lovely feeling of coming back laden from a good wine store but without any of the traffic or the worry of breaking the wine en route (very impressive travel wrap).
