Launched in the early 1980s by Bernard de Nonancourt, Ultra Brut Laurent-Perrier was inspired by the success of the zero-dosage (with no added sugar) champagnes made by the House in the late 19th century. Avant-gardist Laurent-Perrier asserted its independence and innovated by creating a new style of wine: unadorned, subtle and ethereal.Because of the delicacy of its blending, its winey character and enduring freshness, Ultra Brut Laurent-Perrier is champagne at its purest, with zero dosage.
Made from 55% Chardonnay and 45% Pinot Noir, using over a dozen crus rated an average 97%, Ultra Brut Laurent-Perrier is made from grapes grown generally in a year with standout characteristics. In such years, which are rare occurrences in Champagne, nature bestows harvests of fully ripe grapes with low acidity levels. After a meticulous selection process, only those grapes with the desired characteristics will be allowed into the composition of Ultra Brut Laurent-Perrier.
