Aspect: A fine bead and an elegant colour. Cuvée Rosé Laurent-Perrier's colour evolves gently from a pretty raspberry tint to a hint of salmon. In this colour range, the brightest is a pink with subtle shades of melon and raspberry. It owes it quaint name Cuisse de nymphe émue (hot pink, in English), to a rose bush. The bead is so fine that it seems to dance in the glass and then on the palate.
Nose: Subtle, forthright, and very fresh on the nose. Cuvée Rosé Laurent-Perrier suggests a basketful of small berry fruits: strawberries, raspberries, blackcurrants, blackberries, redcurrants, and morello and black cherries. The overwhelming sensation is one of freshness.
Taste: Fruit dominates the palate. Cuvée Rosé Laurent-Perrier is a lively, well-rounded wine which combines structure and freshness. The forthright, slightly sharp attack is like breathing the heady aromas of a freshly-picked basket of berry fruits - a symphony of aromas with a gently-rounded, tender finish.
Shows fine balance, with a vibrant tanginess to the flavors of black currant, strawberry, licorice and candied ginger. Features a fine, creamy bead, revealing a lasting note of smoky mineral on the finish. Drink now through 2018. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 7,000 cases imported.
