Vintage Champagnes that Make The Perfect Christmas Gift
2006 was an exceptional year in the Champagne region of France, producing a rare vintage year that allowed some of the leading champagne houses to produce vintages only be produced in an exceptional year.
Laurent – Perrier Brut Millésimé 2006
Laurent-Perrier is selective when declaring vintages – rarely declaring them and only in the very best years with a unique character. Thus the Brut Millésimé (Vintage Brut) is an exceptional wine and while it maintains the signature style of the house’s wines, it reflects the unique characteristics of the vintage year.
A light yellow with delicate beading. A delicate, subtle nose with aromas of fresh pineapple, dried apricots and almonds. Very pleasant taste, rounded attack, followed by a marked sense of balance, with a lively finish offering hints of white peach and mirabelle.
Food pairing/serving: The Brut Millésimé 2006 pairs harmoniously with fish in sauce, while its roundness and delicacy will prolong your tasting pleasure in the company of poultry or other white meats.
