Real French Champagne is one of the world's most upmarket beverages. But Laurent-Perrier is appealing to those who prefer a more casual approach to the belle saison beverages. This summer they're recommending you pair Laurent-Perrier Champagne with picnic favorites such as fresh berries, burgers hot off the grill, and of course, creamy lobster rolls. Laurent-Perrier’s Ultra Brut has no sugar addition (or "dosage") and therefore drinks bone dry with a tingling mineral backbone, making it a perfect match for freshly shucked, briny oysters.
You can also pair this Chardonnay-dominant cuvée with lightly seared Ahi tuna appetizers. Laurent-Perrier's Brut NV’s freshness matches juicy melon wedges wrapped in salty ribbons of prosciutto. For hot and spicy snacks such as Mexican Street Corn to smoky salmon quiche, pair the 100% Pinot Noir Cuvée Rosé with its cool hints of luscious fruits. It's also very pretty in the glass! A summer luncheon ends with a warm pie especially peach or blueberry, and these pair perfectly with Laurent-Perrier's Demi-Sec; a little on the sweetish side, but brisk enough to be refreshing and a fine way to end your al fresco meal. A glass of fine bubbles really is the best way to celebrate summer.
