Laurent-Perrier Brut is an excellent cheap Champagne that's blended from a high percentage of Chardonnay grapes. This gives the wine a lightness and delicateness that's hard to get from blanc de noir Champagnes. The pale gold hue makes it easy to see the fine bubbles that bead slowly from the bottom of the glass. The nose of this wine is fresh and slightly fruity, and the flavor shows off a hint of citrus and white fruit. The finish is nice and dry, making this an ideal Champagne to enjoy with seafood or as an aperitif.
