LAURENT PERRIER Brut LP, Champagne, NV
Tech: 12% Alcohol. A blend of 50% Chardonnay, 35% Pinot Noir, and 15% Pinot Meunier.   Sensory: light-gold-straw in color and fully sparkling; dry, medium-bodied with freshly balanced acidity and just a hint skin contact phenolics.  Medium rich, toasty nose that leads to a palate offering mixed citrus with some earthy red fruit, lots of toasted-yeasty-bready notes and an earth and mineral terroir component. Satisfying and delicious. Can serve as a richer aperitif or sipping Champagne but is also well suited to food. Lovely feel in the mouth. BS: 93.
