    A lacy mousse shows good hold over a salmon pink coloured base that has a very persistent stream of tiny bubbles flowing through it. Delicate raspberry, winter strawberry and toast scents overlay yeast lees and a chalky minerality. The racy palate features light peach, water melon and winter strawberry flavour which are married to subtle toast nuances. Dry chalky finish with crisp acidity and a sculptured medium length aftertaste that’s fine and elegant.
    Drink over the next 3-4 years.

    Fragrant wafts of smoke and spice accent the steeped raspberry and mandarin orange peel flavors of this tightly meshed rosé Champagne, which is backed by a vivid spine of mouthwatering acidity and is silky on the palate, with hints of dried herb, licorice and toasted almond playing on the finish. Drink now through 2025.

    Laurent Perrier first released this rosé in 1968, well before it became fashionable to have a pink-hued Champagne in the portfolio. 100% Pinot Noir is sourced from both the north and south sectors of the Montagne de Reims sub-region, and famously draws its colour from skin contact rather than the more usual addition of red wine. It has striking freshness on the nose, bags of pure, zippy strawberry and raspberry fruit flavours, and satisfying vivacity. It's beautifully balanced with a long finish, and calls for a carpaccio of raw salmon.
