Champagne Laurent-Perrier Cuvée Rosé

I have to admit it, I have a weakness for pink champagne, I like the fact that there is much difference from on to another, I like the complexity and versatility in food pairings. Laurent-Perrier has been producing this cuvée since 1968, then in comparatively recent times. This is a rosé de saignée, obtained through the maceration of pinot noir grapes (which make up the majority of the assembly) left on the skins for several days. Strangely for a maceration rosé, pink is quite intense, the dominant shade is red cherry, a further examination reveals hints of orange. The mousse is very rich with medium sized bubbles rising fast towards the edge of the glass. The aromas are of citrus and strawberries. The palate confirms the aromas of small red fruits and citrus, the bubble is crisp, the finish is fresh and tasty.
It ‘s nice drink alone, with raw fish such as tuna or salmon, but not above food combinations with white meat or fish with light sauces. Obviously great with strawberries and wild berries.
A champagne that focuses on freshness, great chilled in hot summer days, very drinkable and enjoyable for everyone, in a moment you are to have finished a bottle without knowing how.
