About this Item

Brut Millesime, 1996
5 (1 x 5) 750ml
Laurent-Perrier, one of Champagne’s leading houses, was founded in 1812. The house was ‘reborn’ in 1948 when Bernard de Nonancourt was appointed Chairman and Chief Executive of Laurent-Perrier. The signature house style was created by Bernard which can be described as fresh, light and elegant, and this is done by using a higher percentage of Chardonnay grapes.

Critics Ratings

‘A Champagne evoking elegance and finesse, this also has the hallmark 1996 structure. A fine mousse buoys its coffee, citrus and pencil shaving flavors, while the acidity carries them to a long conclusion.’ - Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator, 92/100 (Nov 2005)

‘Extremely toasty, with a short blast of popcorn, baked apple, hay and a touch of green herbs. Runs tangy on the palate, emphasizing lemon and tangerine flavors. Lengthy and textured on the finish, with citrus in pure form.’ - Michael Schachner, Wine Enthusiast, 90/100 (Dec 2005)
