Prior to 1968, making non-vintage rosé champagne was virtually unthinkable. It was during the midst of a cultural revolution that the visionary Bernard de Nonancourt gave it its credentials. Laurent-Perrier was founded in 1812 by André Michel. Post World War I, Laurent-Perrier was successfully producing 50,000 cases of Champagne however, the business soon took a hard hit when war broke out.
Known as one of the best selling rosé Champagnes in the world Cuvée Rosé Laurent-Perrier was created in 1968 and is one of the few rosés still made by saignée method. This daring wine combines real structure with freshness and a soft character. Made with hand-sorted Pinot Noir grapes which are typically left for the juice of the grapes to be in contact with their skins for 2-3 days. By doing so, the extraction of colour is obtained and the red-berry aromas and flavours are extracted for the palate. Memorable for its freshness and red berry aromas Cuvée Rosé is a perfect refreshing apéritif, that works well when served with a variety of dishes including Asian cuisine, poultry and red-fruit desserts.
