    Winemaker's Notes:

    Straw yellow color, with fine and persistent bubbles.

    The initial aroma is intense and complex, with notes of fresh fruits (peach and grapefruit). It evolves displaying hints of dried almonds.

    From the outset, the pinot noir comes to the fore with good weight and marked by red fruit character with candied and persistent notes (lemon and citrus peel) on the finish.

    Laurent-Perrier has elected to be highly selective by only declaring a vintage in the very best years. This means that the Brut Millésimé (Vintage Brut) is always a unique and exceptional wine. By maintaining the signature style of the House's wines, pure and fresh in essence, it aims to show the quintessential character of each given year.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A soft, ripe Champagne, as befits the year. Attractive apples, spice and toast go beautifully with sweet acidity. It is developing richness and weight, although not likely to age over many years. (12/1/2010)

    Bright yellow-gold. Deep, smoky aromas of poached pear, pit fruits, lees and brown butter are lifted by lemon rind and minerals. Smooth, open-knit and spicy, offering juicy citrus and orchard fruit flavors and suggestions of brown sugar and honey. This fully mature brut finishes with very good breadth and lingering spiciness.
