TASTING NOTES

"This is a solid and very dense Champagne with a phenolic and rich texture. Layers of cooked apples and light lemon rind. Brioche and light pie-crust in the aftertaste. Fresh and relatively dry aftertaste." JamesSuckling.com

"The 2008 Brut Millésimé opens in the glass with lovely aromas of lemon oil, green apple, warm biscuits, iodine and mandarin. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, deep and seamless, with an elegantly layered core, a fine, pinpoint mousse and racy balancing acids, concluding with a long and incipiently biscuity finish. This is a classy vintage Champagne that will develop beautiful complexity in the cellar." William Kelley, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #242

"A finely knit Champagne, defined by well-cut acidity that frames notes of Asian pear, white cherry, slivered almond and fleur de sel. The mousse shows a lovely creamy viscosity. Hints of citrus and spice emerge on the finish. Drink now through 2028. 1,000 cases imported." Wine Spectator

"The 2008 Brut Millésimé is a gorgeous wine that expresses all of the pedigree of the vintage beautifully. Complex and nuanced, with tons of class, the 2008 has so much to offer. Dried pear, mint, chamomile, crushed rock, dried flowers and pastry overtones are all laced together in this finely-knit, resonant Champagne. At $75.00 a bottle, Laurent-Perrier’s Brut Millésimé is one the best widely available vintage Champagne readers find from this historic harvest." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"Greenish gold. Very fine bead. Attractive mixture of ripeness and smokiness on the nose. Extremely different from the easy 2007. Fauconnet thinks this tastes as though it’s all Chardonnay because of the austerity of the vintage. I wouldn’t actually describe it as austere. Fine-boned, rather, with lots of fruit. Tense but fine with lots to chew on. Much richer than the Blanc de Blancs." JancisRobinson.com
