Laurent-Perrier - Alexandria Rose 2004 - Brut Champagne (1.5 L)
Overview: As creator of the benchmark Cuvée Rosé, non-vintage champagne, it was a natural evolution for Laurent-Perrier, to offer a prestige vintage rosé.
Alexandra Rosé is a rare and cherished wine that comes from a rigorous selection of the best plots ; an exceptional marriage between Grands Crus grapes of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
The year 2004: despite periods of hail and storms during the spring and summer, well-matured harvest of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes.
Tasting Notes: A delicate, pale salmon pink colour with persistent and fine bubbles.
A complex nose with hints of wild strawberries and redcurrant jam, followed by notes of candied fruits. Elegant and refined, this wine shows great minerality. Its soft and dry texture leads into a long finish indicative of berry fruit with a strong presence of red fruit.
Pairing: To be saved for the finest foods: langoustine tempura, roasted lobster, scallops with black truffle, truffled filet of lamb, venison with cranberries.
Points: 95, James Suckling
Format/ABV: 1.5 L/12.0%
