Laurent-Perrier Alexandra Rose' 1998

Laurent-Perrier uses the méthode champenoise for their champagne production. Alexandra Rose' 1998 is composed of 80% Pinot Noir and 20% Chardonnay from grand cru villages. The grapes for this champagne are considered the finest and undergo a unique production. After harvest, the grapes are sorted and de-stemmed. Chardonnay grapes are added to Pinot Noir and macerated together for a short period of time. This is only possible in the best years and the two varietals must ripen at the same time. This process provides a delicate color. Stainless steel tanks are used for production. During the bottle fermentation, the wine ages at least eight years on the lees.
