Laurent Perrier Alexandra Rosé

Cuvee: Rosé
Vintage: Multi-Vintage
Laurent-Perrier's premium Vintage Cuvée Rosé is like no other champagne and is the outcome of a deliberately innovative approach to winemaking.  Produced in very small quantities, this outstanding, subtly powerful wine is rare and much sought-after. Since its launch in 1987, only seven Alexandra Rosé vintages have been made, the last one in 1998. It expresses the very highest standards epitomized by the House of Laurent- Perrier, which also produces the benchmark non-vintage rosé champagne. Using some of the most prestigious Champagne villages, or crus, such as Ambonnay, Bouzy, Louvois, Mailly, Verzenay and Tours-sur-Marne for pinot noir, Avize, Cramant, Chouilly and le Mesnil-sur-Oger for chardonnay, the blend is 80% Pinot Noir, 20% Chardonnay. Tasting notes Eye Pale salmon pink with an orange tinge. Nose Complex and powerful, the first aromas are reminiscent of strawberry jam. These are followed by floral notes such as rose petal. Palate Lively and crisp, with dominant flavors of red berry fruit such as wild strawberries. Full-bodied, with a velvety texture and a finale showing hints of dried apricots and orange peel. Food pairing An excellent wine for game with bilberry sauce. It has ample power to be matched even with stronger-flavored dishes.
