Laurent-Perrier Ultra Brut

Laurent-Perrier uses the méthode champenoise for their champagne production. Ultra Brut is composed of 55% Chardonnay and 45% Pinot Noir. There is no added dosage/sugar. Ripe grapes from a dozen or more crus are selected for their low acid and high sugar content. Ultra Brut rests for a minimum of 4 years on the lees. The finished champagne has a residual sugar of about 1 gram per liter from the vinification process.
