Maison Pierlot was founded in 1812 by André Michel Pierlot, a former cooper and bottler who purchased two parcels of property in Tours-sur-Marne. Upon his death, Pierlot willed the company to his cellar master, Eugène Laurent, and the name was eventually changed to Maison Laurent-Perrier when Mathilde Emilie Perrier, Laurent's widow, became the steward and combined the two family names. Today, Michel Fauconnet, Laurent-Perrier's third Cellar Master, continues to shepherd the family legacy forward. "I was fortunate enough to be accepted as a trainee for a Champagne House with great ambitions," says Fauconnet, who began working at the House in 1974. "I have spent my entire career at this House and share its passion for champagne, and its values of exacting standards and perfectionism." Cuvée Rosé Laurent-Perrier is crafted using Pinot Noir grapes from nearly a dozen crus, most of them grands crus. The grapes derive from the South and North parts of the Montagne de Reims, including the celebrated CÃ´te de Bouzy. Once the grapes have been harvested by expert farmers, they are manually sorted and macerated for up to three days using the saignée method. This maceration method provides the champagne with a delicate salmon pink color, along with a flavor profile dominated by notes of berries and citrus. After pressing the grapes, the juice — or must — is fermented and bottled. "Then, we wait," says Fauconnet — it takes a minimum of four years of maturation to coax bottles of Cuvée Rosé Laurent-Perrier to perfection. Cuvée Rosé Laurent-Perrier has a slightly salmon color, along with an aroma of berries, watermelon, black cherries and citrus. The aroma gives way to a symphony of raspberries and strawberries, and leads to a tender and delicate finish. The champagne earned a score of 92 points from Wine Spectator, which said it was "balanced"and "vibrant." In addition, it earned a score of 96 points from The Connoisseur's Guide, which called it "elegant"and "fruity." Pick up a bottle today!
