The finesse of an exceptional vintage rosé champagne

The producer

Founded in 1812, the Laurent-Perrier Champagne House reached its golden age in 1948, thanks to Bernard de Nonancourt’s dynamism. Under the leadership of this visionary businessman, the house stood out by producing vintages that reflected its values of excellence and innovation.

Since its very beginnings, the house has built its identity around Chardonnay. Through the freshness and finesse that it brings to the blend, this grape variety is the hallmark of this Champagne reference.

Laurent-Perrier's avant-garde approach is reflected in Grand Siècle and its multi-vintage blends, its Ultra Brut with a "zero dosage" style and also its Cuvée Rosé, the first rosé champagne in this category. These original "breakthrough" cuvées, each creation being subject to an event, mark a new page in the history of Laurent Perrier and its quest for excellence, for which it is internationally renowned.

The quintessence of Bernard de Nonancourt’s cherished values are in the Laurent-Perrier cuvées, unanimously recognised by connoisseurs.

The wine

Elegant, fine and mineral, Alexandra Rosé 2004 is a prestigious vintage champagne. This cuvée was created in 1987 by Bernard de Nonancourt, the founder of the House, for the wedding of his eldest daughter, Alexandra. Alexandra Rosé by Laurent-Perrier is only made in years when the Grands Crus of Champagne (Pinot noir and Chardonnay) reach perfect maturity at the same time. Thus, only 7 vintages have been released since its launch.

The vintage

Despite hail and storms during the spring and summer seasons, the warm and dry month of September led to an abundant grape harvest of perfectly ripen Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes.

The blend

During the maceration of the Pinot Noir (80%), 20% Chardonnay is added. Alexandra Rosé 2004 by Laurent-Perrier benefits from a very long ageing period in the cellars.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Disgorged in 2012 after eight years sur lattes, the 2004 Brut Alexandra Grande Cuvée Rosé has really begun to develop some complexity after seven years on cork. Salmon-pink in hue, the wine wafts from the glass with a beautiful bouquet of blood orange, iodine, dried rose petals, aromatic bitters and tangerine. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, pure and racy, with a delicate pinpoint mousse, good concentration at the core and a long, saline finish. Readers who have had the foresight to cellar a few bottles should pop a cork or two, as this rosé is showing brilliantly.
