Winemaker Notes

To ensure that Laurent-Perrier Brut Millésimé (Vintage Brut) is an outstanding and rare wine, Cellar Master Michel Fauconnet only declares a vintage in the finest years. Such wines clearly express the specific character of the year, enshrined in the House style.

After more than eight years' ageing, the Brut Vintage 2006 is a complex wine. It expresses the full character of the year while also reflecting the Laurent-Perrier style.

The House's search for a subtle balance between liveliness and ripeness results in Laurent-Perrier Vintages that have excellent ageing capacity.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
W&S 92
Wine & Spirits
This has the richness and roundness of 2006, though it finishes dry, with crunchy apple flavors and chalky acidity. Tart and supple, this is an old-fashioned yeasty Champagne with contemporary power.
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2006 Brut Millésimé is the polar opposite of the 2007, bursting from the glass with a rich bouquet of honeyed pears, smoke, yellow stone fruit and buttered toast. Medium to full-bodied, fleshy and gourmand, it's broad and enveloping, with a layered core and a nicely defined finish. This is in its prime today.

WS 91
Wine Spectator
Smoke and mineral notes underscore a ripe and juicy mix of cassis and white peach fruit flavors, and notes of candied ginger and orange zest, in this bright Champagne, with a lively bead. Drink now through 2026.

Laurent Perrier The History of Laurent-Perrier Winery Video

Established in 1812, Champagne Laurent-Perrier has a long tradition of innovation in Champagne and can be credited with many of the ideas that have defined Champagne production since the mid 20th century. Laurent-Perrier was among the first to introduce stainless steel fermentation tanks to the region in the 1950s, resurrected the non-dosage Champagne category with the introduction of Ultra Brut in 1981, and sparked the revival of non-vintage rosé Champagne in 1968 despite the opinion of other producers that non-vintage rosés were not to be taken seriously. Today, Laurent Perrier's iconic Cuvée Rosé remains the benchmark for non-vintage rosé champagne. 

Laurent-Perrier has become one of the international leaders in Champagne based entirely on the quality of the wines and core values as a company. Laurent-Perrier is still a family-controlled business and makes nothing other than champagne. The house prides itself on quality and consistency, attributable to having only 3 chefs de caves since 1949.

Laurent-Perrier's house style emphasizes freshness, elegance, and finesse across its entire range of champagnes. None of the wines are aged in oak, and Laurent-Perrier makes fewer single-vintage wines than many other houses. The art of blending - not just of grapes but of years, as well - is fundamental to champagne. At Laurent-Perrier, even our prestige cuvée Grand Siècle is never a single vintage wine, but always a blend of three complementary vintage years, essentially "creating" the perfect year.

Associated with luxury, celebration, and romance, the region, Champagne, is home to the world’s most prized sparkling wine. In order to bear the label, ‘Champagne’, a sparkling wine must originate from this northeastern region of France—called Champagne—and adhere to strict quality standards. Made up of the three towns Reims, Épernay, and Aÿ, it was here that the traditional method of sparkling wine production was both invented and perfected, birthing a winemaking technique as well as a flavor profile that is now emulated worldwide.

Well-drained, limestone and chalky soil defines much of the region, which lend a mineral component to its wines. Champagne’s cold, continental climate promotes ample acidity in its grapes but weather differences from year to year can create significant variation between vintages. While vintage Champagnes are produced in exceptional years, non-vintage cuvées are produced annually from a blend of several years in order to produce Champagnes that maintain a consistent house style.

With nearly negligible exceptions, . These can be blended together or bottled as individual varietal Champagnes, depending on the final style of wine desired. Chardonnay, the only white variety, contributes freshness, elegance, lively acidity and notes of citrus, orchard fruit and white flowers. Pinot Noir and its relative Pinot Meunier, provide the backbone to many blends, adding structure, body and supple red fruit flavors. Wines with a large proportion of Pinot Meunier will be ready to drink earlier, while Pinot Noir contributes to longevity. Whether it is white or rosé, most Champagne is made from a blend of red and white grapes—and uniquely, rosé is often produce by blending together red and white wine. A Champagne made exclusively from Chardonnay will be labeled as ‘blanc de blancs,’ while ones comprised of only red grapes are called ‘blanc de noirs.’

Representing the topmost expression of a Champagne house, a vintage Champagne is one made from the produce of a single, superior harvest year. Vintage Champagnes account for a mere 5% of total Champagne production and are produced about three times in a decade. Champagne is typically made as a blend of multiple years in order to preserve the house style; these will have non-vintage, or simply, NV on the label. The term, "vintage," as it applies to all wine, simply means a single harvest year.
