I’m fairly excited concerning the launch of the Laurent-Perrier Rosé – the world’s best-selling rosé champagne – in Jeroboam for lots extra causes than the plain “dimension issues”.
The very first thing I would hear you ask is… WTF is a Jeroboam? It’s mainly a big-arsed bottle of bubbles … Three litres or the equal to 4 customary bottles or 30 glasses. Aged longer within the cellars and superior high quality, Jeroboams are extraordinarily uncommon…. and fairly darn attractive!
5 causes to get enthusiastic about Laurent-Perrier Rosé en Jeroboam
1. I like rosé champagne and this is likely one of the greatest
Should you’ve been with me for some time you’ll know I like champagne however that I’ve a smooth spot for rosé champagne. I feel Rosé champagne will get a little bit of a foul wrap from wine snobs. It’s checked out as being a bit gentle and fluffy and possibly overly female… and a few rosés are these issues and I like them for that (try my Prime 5 Spring rosé champagnes right here).
However the Laurent-Perrier Rosé is one thing else. I typically pour this rosé for crimson wine lovers (and males) I’m attempting to transform to grow to be champagne followers, who don’t suppose they like champagne and positively not rosé.
Laurent-Perrier is definitely a BIG champagne model – the truth is, it’s the fifth highest promoting home of all champagne homes, and the rosé is the best promoting rosé champagne on the planet. And their rosé is BIG to match the model. What makes it an enormous rosé is that it’s 100% pinot noir ( from one of the best crus of Ambonnay, Bouzy, Louvois and Excursions-Sur-Marne), aged on lees for 5 years, and made with the maceration method (Learn extra concerning the method right here).
The Laurent-Perrier Rosé gives a lot of vigorous berry fruits, redcurrant and blood orange. The palate has an amazing stability between uplifting acidity, freshly picked fruit, like black cherry and a marked vinous character that makes this such an fascinating model.
2. The Laurent-Perrier Rosé can pair with something
The Laurent-Perrier Rosé is a surprising, totally developed champagne, that may deal with nearly any meals pairing.
The home suggests (nearly dares!) you to serve it with spicy Asian or Indian and it’s a cracker with birthday cake too (though if you understand me, I often cross on the cake and pop extra champs!)
3. Champagne tastes higher in massive bottles
Not solely are jeroboams revered for his or her sheer dimension and due to this fact you get extra champagne without delay, they’re extremely wanted by wine-lovers for the added oenological advantages they contribute to the champagne itself!
The consultants (the individuals who truly make the champagne) describe it like this – the larger the bottle, the longer the fermentation, and the extra complexity within the wine, and fewer oxidation happens.
In massive codecs like magnums and jeroboams autolysis (learn extra right here) takes longer (as much as 4 weeks longer) and these bottles have extra glass floor space than customary bottles, so there may be extra contact between the lees sitting on the glass contained in the bottle and the wine, which brings extra roundness and rather more complexity.
And there’s much less oxidation in magnums and jeroboams, so the champagne ages higher. Magnums/jeroboams maintain two/4 occasions the quantity of wine, however they really have the identical area between the underside of the cork and the wine’s floor, which could be a supply of hint oxygen after disgorgement. The identical quantity of oxygen uncovered to a better quantity of wine reduces oxidation (oxidation ultimately turns wine into vinegar), and is the important thing distinction in how the champagne higher ages after disgorgement. It’s more energizing but additionally extra complicated and intense from the autolysis.
Simply writing that is making me thirsty for a BIG bottle of bubbles. Make amends for extra about bottle sizes in my put up “does dimension matter?” right here.
4. Laurent-Perrier is just like the Carrie Bradshaw of Champagne…
They know the way to rock a glance and work an adjunct.
Should you’ve been hanging with me for some time, you’ll additionally know that I’m not your conventional wine reviewer. I’m not all about technical stuff, scores out of 10, or simply the style. I can simply as fortunately pop a bottle of my celebration fave Mumm as I can go deep with a small, unknown grower relying on my temper. I completely admit, my appreciation for champagne is influenced by my temper, the event, the style, the story of the wine maker, the lunar cycle, and even the advertising and packaging.
And there’s not a champagne model who produces ornamental containers and instances higher than Laurent-Perrier.
From Kerrie Hess artwork work, to gold cages and leather-trimmed ice buckets, I’m a sucker for the model!
