Laurent-Perrier, one of the finest champagne houses in the world has collaborated with Australian artist and illustrator Kerrie Hess to create a limited edition Cuvée Rosé Gift Box to celebrate its cherished Cuvée Rosé and the 50th anniversary of this iconic champagne.
Created in 1968, Cuvée Rosé was developed from the boldness and know-how of the House of Laurent-Perrier. Perfected at each stage of its making, Cuvée Rosé is acknowledged for its consistency and its high quality and is widely regarded as the benchmark of its category.
Kerrie’s illustration for the gift box was inspired by her time in Paris and captures the Parisian romance of enjoying Cuvee Rosé amongst the city’s most well known landmarks including the Eiffel Tower and The Pont Alexandre III Bridge. The pink water-coloured tones are inspired by the hues and sensory characteristics of the champagne.
What to expect?
Made in the traditional saignee method plus a blend of some Coteaux Champenois red wine. This oozes class, elegance and one of the most important rosés of its time. This rose was first created by Bertrand Denoncourt in 1968 at a time when making rosé was considered fanciful and in our mind remains a go-to rosé when exploring champagne, especially when pairing with foods.
Lots of lively berry fruits, redcurrant and blood orange. The palate has a great balance between uplifting acidity, freshly picked fruit, like black cherry and a marked vinous character that makes this such an interesting style.This is 100% pinot noir from the best crus of Ambonnay, Bouzy, Louvois and Tours-Sur-Marne.
Serve around 8-10 degree celsius
