Laurent-Perrier champagne brut l.p.: Very good!


may 15, 2009: emilie's graduation day! so of course it was a time for celebration, and this bottle did not disappoint. it was, as my father paraphrased winston churchill, aged and with few bubbles. my father said good champagne is supposed to have a nose of burnt toast ... but this nose wasn't very aromatic, though greg said it reminded him a bit of apples. my father said he thought he had purchased it in chicago about 10 years ago. he gave a bottle to emilie's doctoral advisor, dr. david gray. we had it with some foie gras my grandmere had given us. delicious. a wonderful wine on a fantastic day :) photo not exact. 12 percent alcohol. about $20-25 when it was purchased. worth twice that today.
