Unveiling Harmony: A Detailed Exploration of Laurent-Perrier Demi-Sec Champagne

The General Wine is delighted to offer Laurent-Perrier Harmony Demi-Sec Champagne, a delightful expression that transcends the current trend towards drier styles. This exquisite sparkler caters to those who appreciate a touch of sweetness, crafted with the finesse expected from the prestigious Laurent-Perrier house. Whether you're browsing our extensive selection online at your website or visiting our welcoming shops in Liphook and Petersfield, a bottle of Harmony awaits to elevate your next celebration.

A Well-Balanced Sweetness: Demi-Sec Explained

Demi-Sec translates to "half-dry" in French, indicating a sweetness level between Brut (dry) and Doux (sweet) Champagnes. Harmony falls into this category, boasting a touch of residual sugar that complements its vibrant acidity. This balance creates a delightful and approachable drinking experience, perfect for those who find Brut Champagnes a little too dry.

A Blend of Finesse: Grape Varietals and Winemaking

Laurent-Perrier Harmony showcases a masterful blend of the three Champagne grapes: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Meunier. The composition typically features 45% Chardonnay, contributing elegance and finesse. Pinot Noir (around 40%) adds depth and structure, while Meunier (around 15%) brings a touch of fruitiness.

The winemaking process adheres to the traditional Méthode Champenoise. Following meticulous grape selection and pressing, the juice undergoes fermentation in stainless steel tanks. A second fermentation in the bottle, with the addition of yeast and sugar, creates the signature bubbles. The extended ageing on the lees (spent yeast cells) further enhances complexity and richness.

A Symphony of Flavours: Tasting Notes

The first impression of Laurent-Perrier Harmony is an enticing bouquet of aromas. Bright citrus notes like lemon and grapefruit mingle with hints of minerals and a touch of vanilla. As the bubbles dance on the palate, flavours of pear, apple, peach, and even pineapple emerge, beautifully balanced by a refreshing acidity. The sweetness is present but never cloying, leaving a lively and persistent finish.

Food Pairings: Bringing Harmony to the Table

The versatility of Laurent-Perrier Harmony makes it a fantastic choice for various food pairings. Here are some delectable suggestions to elevate your dining experience:

  • Appetisers: Harmony pairs beautifully with creamy canapés, foie gras, or smoked salmon.
  • Main Courses: For a touch of sweetness that complements savoury flavours, consider pairing this Champagne with glazed pork belly, duck à l'orange, or creamy mushroom risotto.
  • Desserts: Where Harmony truly shines is with desserts. Enjoy it alongside fruit tarts, crème brûlée, or even a decadent chocolate cake.
