Laurent-Perrier Cuvee Rose Tiger Cage Limited Edition Brut
Decanter Magazine 92 Rating
Laurent Perrier first released this rosé in 1968, well before it became fashionable to have a pink-hued Champagne in the portfolio. 100% Pinot Noir is sourced from both the north and south sectors of the Montagne de Reims sub-region, and famously draws its color from skin contact rather than the more usual addition of red wine. It has striking freshness on the nose, bags of pure, zippy strawberry and raspberry fruit flavors, and satisfying vivacity. It's beautifully balanced with a long finish, and calls for a carpaccio of raw salmon. Drinking Window: 2018-2020.
Must be ordered.
