Laurent Perrier Ultra Brut
Pioneer in the Brut Nature category, Laurent-Perrier Ultra Brut is a wine with no added sugar. It expresses the quintessential character of champagne and was known as a “Great Wine Without Sugar”. Launched in 1981, Laurent-Perrier Ultra Brut is a true illustration of the House’s know-how.
Grape varietals: Chardonnay 55 % *
Pinot Noir 45 % *
Reserve wines: one or two reserve wines, from a complementary year.
Crus: 15 crus * are used in its composition.
Zero dosage: The bunches of grapes are rigorously selected to ensure that only grapes with high sugar levels and low acidity are retained. These conditions are necessary to create a finished champagne that has the required balance without any dosage.
Ageing: ideal ageing of 6 years minimum.
A very pale and crystal-bright in colour. Intense and complex on the nose with a wide range of aromas, including fruits (citrus and white fruit), flowers (honeysuckle) and iodine notes, which give off an impression of freshness. This airy and delicate wine of a surprising length is characterized by high purity of taste, a long and non-saturating finish.
Serve between 8°C and 10°C.
When it launched Ultra Brut in 1981, Laurent-Perrier innovated by using a blue and silver livery for the packaging for the very first time, paving the way for a new category of champagnes.
The quality of the wine and its instantly recognisable label definitively established Laurent-Perrier Ultra Brut as the benchmark and flagship of this new category of Brut Nature wines which it pioneered.
According to current legislation, Brut nature/zero-dosage champagnes must meet two imperative criteria, namely less than 3g of residual sugar per litre and no addition of sugar syrup after bottle fermentation.
Vinification & ageing
A technical feat to create a new species of wine.
The blend, specially created by the Cellar Master in his constant quest for the absolute, allows the purity of the grape to express itself in all its dazzling glory.
This champagne, made to the most exacting blending specifications, calls for a very special type of wine-making expertise to achieve the looked-for balance with no dosage. The balance obtained without acidity is magnified by a minimum six years cellar-ageing.
Upstanding, pure, subtle: Laurent-Perrier Ultra Brut retains a suave, natural expression, underpinned by an enduring freshness.
Laurent-Perrier Ultra Brut pairs perfectly with seafood, sushi and a white fish ceviche as well as a young parmesan or a pata negra ham.
