Laurent Perrier Rose Champagne Tiger Cage

On the eye: This Champagne as a fine bead and an elegant colour. The colour evolves gently from a pretty raspberry tint to a hint of salmon.

In this colour range, the brightest is a pink with subtle shades of melon and raspberry. It owes it quaint name Cuisse de nymphe emue (hot pink, in English), to a rose bush.

The bead is so fine that it seems to dance in the glass and then on the palate.

On the nose: Subtle, forthright, and very fresh on the nose. Laurent-Perrier Cuvee Rose suggests a basketful of small berry fruits: strawberries, raspberries, blackcurrants, blackberries, redcurrants, and morello and black cherries. The overwhelming sensation is one of freshness.

On the palate: This Non Vintage Rose has fruit that dominates the palate. Cuvee Rose is a lively, well-rounded wine which combines structure and freshness. The forthright, slightly sharp attack is like breathing the heady aromas of a freshly-picked basket of berry fruits – a symphony of aromas with a gently-rounded, tender finish.

The Cuvee Rose Laurent-Perrier bottle, with its generous, curvaceous lines, is unique – an invitation to self-indulgence. When Bernard de Nonancourt launched Cuvee Rose Laurent-Perrier in 1968, he decided to present his creation in a uniquely distinctive bottle to magnify this very special cuvee.

He found his inspiration in the rather stubby bottles manufactured in the time of King Henri IV, adding the seal-like monogrammed ‘LP’ shield. It works perfectly with soft, creamy cheeses such as Chaource, Mussy-sur-Seine, and Langres, and with desserts such as a berry fruit salad. The more daring marry it with Asian or subcontinent cuisine.
