2008 was characterised by a cold winter without being glacial and a sullen and rainy spring. The harvest began mid-September in dry and fresh weather which offered perfect grape growing conditions. with some very beautiful Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs. These high quality grapes revealed an incredible aromatic richness which would foresee an exceptional vintage.
This stunning wine is white gold in appearance with a fine effervescence. Mineral, chalky notes on the nose lead to citrus and white fruit. A lively wine of great depth and persistent freshness that gives way to notes of bitter orange, biscuit and bright lemon on the finish.
Bottled and aged for 10 years on lees in the Laurent-Perrier's cellars before disgorgement prior to release. A great choice for drinking today and, for the patient champagne drinker, it has outstanding ageing potential.
