Bernard de Nonancourt, who is responsible for elevating Laurent-Perrier into one of the premier Champagne brands with global reach and stature, first introduced a non-vintage rosé in 1968, at a time when no one else dared to do anything but a vintage dated rosé. He called it “Cuvée Rosé” and put it in the unique shorter, rounder bottle shape that was used for Champagne in the 17th century. Along with the Grand Siècle which is L-P’s tête de cuvée multi-vintage wine, this Cuvée Rosé is the Champagne for which the house is most known and admired. It is 100% Pinot Noir from 12 different crus, including Grand Cru vineyards in Ambonnay, Bouzy, Louvois and Tours-sur-Marne. The final blended wine is bottled and aged on the lees for a minimum of four years before disgorgement with a dosage of 9 grams per liter. We love having it on the shelf, not just because we love looking at the pretty package, but because it's a great Rose!
