The delectable aromas derive from the soak-on-the-skins maceration process applied to Pinot Noir grapes. Laurent-Perrier derived this knowledge from the skills it acquired making still Coteaux Champenois wines, for which extensive knowledge of Pinot Noir vinification is crucial.
Despite periods of hail and storms during the spring and summer, September’s beneficial warm and dry weather saw an abundant, well-matured harvest of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes (the former being more heterogeneous). A delicate, pale salmon pink color. Persistent and fine bubbles. A complex nose with hints of wild strawberries and red currant 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.
Alexandra Rosé 2004 is reserved for the finest dishes: tempura of langoustine, roasted lobster and scallops with black truffle.
