Laurent-Perrier Cuvee Rose was first released in 1968. Its iconic bottle shape was inspired by the bottles used in Champagne centuries ago. Thanks to its consistently high quality and memorable bottle, Laurent-Perrier Cuvee Rose has become the most recognized rose Champagne worldwide and is the benchmark of its category.
Laurent-Perrier Cuvee Rose is made in a winery dedicated solely to its production. The grapes are sourced from carefully selected plots, arrive at the winery, and are meticulously sorted and destemmed before going into vats. The proprietary maceration process is used, which allows for skin contact typically for 48 to 72 hours. During that time, the wine obtains its color and develops the full aromatic richness of Pinot Noir. After the base wines are blended and bottled, Cuvee Rose ages in the cellars for at least five years (six years for magnums). It receives a light dosage of 9 grams of sugar per liter at disgorging, classifying it as a Brut Champagne. Laurent-Perrier Cuvee Rose is made of 100% Pinot Noir from 10 different crus situated mainly in Montagne de Reims, including the grand crus of Ambonnay, Bouzy, Louvois, and Tours-sur-Marne.
