Cuvée Rosé is iconic, showcasing the audacity and creativity of the House of Laurent-Perrier. It was introduced by Bernard de Nonancourt in 1968 at a time when rosé champagne was largely non-existent. In fact, Cuvée Rosé created the rosé champagne category and remains the benchmark to this day.
BLENDING AND WINE MAKING
Cuvée Rosé is 100% Pinot Noir blended from ten Grands Crus from both the north and south Montagne de Reims, notably Ambonnay, Bouzy, Louvois and Tours-sur-Marne. The grapes are de-stemmed before a brief maceration lasting between two and three days, depending on the nature of the harvest. It is this unique process that creates the wine’s signature rosé colour and enables the Pinot Noir to express its full aromatic richness. The wine is then cellar-aged for a minimum of five years.
Cuvée Rosé’s enticing colour varies naturally between light strawberry and pale salmon pink. The nose is fresh and refined, with a broad range of berry fruit – raspberries, redcurrants, strawberries and black cherries. The wine is slightly more structured on the palate: the impression of freshness remains while the red berry fruit flavours add depth and complexity.
Cuvée Rosé is a full-bodied, pleasurable wine. While it can be enjoyed as an apéritif, it also pairs well with a wide range of foods, including fish, lamb, red fruit puddings and Asian cuisine. Best served between 8˚C and 10˚C.
