Overview

To produce Laurent-Perrier’s luxury cuvée, Bernard de Nonancourt decided to concentrate on two of the mainstays of Champagne’s know-how: the blending of different crus (wines from separate villages) and from different harvest years. The epitome of Champagne blending, Grand Siècle calls on wines from the finest growths and the very best harvests; years which have been declared as vintages by Laurent-Perrier. Made to be given or shared with friends and family, it is a very seductive Champagne, totally enjoyable.

Expert Reviews

De Nonancourt’s vision was to produce a multi-vintage prestige cuvée able to maintain consistent quality. This is achieved by blending only grand cru fruit from the best crus in the finest years declared by Laurent-Perrier.

True to name, this is a grand release for Laurent-Perrier’s flagship. It captures majestic concentration of freshly picked yellow plums, white peaches, preserved lemons, dried pears and figs, with glorious complexity of more than twelve years of age reflected in wisps of wild honey, truffles, wild mushrooms, ginger, brioche, even woodsmoke. There’s a hint of iodine and an undercurrent of minerality that tosses and glides through the finish. A seamlessly blended wine of remarkable perseverance and determined linearity while maintaining great breadth and fullness. It’s ready to go right away and yet conceals surprising potential. Grand Siècle ages magnificently far beyond its release, but with no indication of disgorgement date or base vintages on the label, collections can be a challenge to manage.

Winery Tasting Notes

The Blend

Grape varieties: pinot noir and chardonnay, with chardonnay being the slightly dominant variety. Geographical Origin: Grand Siècle is produced from about twelve of the most prestigious villages, such as Ambonnay, Verzenay, Mailly, Avize, Cramant, Chouilly and Le Mesnil-sur-Oger.

Appearance

Starry bright, with a brilliant yellow hue.

Aroma

Subtle hints of honey, hazelnuts, grilled almonds and fresh pastry make this a perfect wine to go with the finest dishes.

Palate

Powerful and yet well-rounded, this wine is rich and savoury, finishing with a deliciously fresh touch. The length of its flavours is remarkable. Grand Siècle shows a unique and balanced combination of depth and finesse.

Serving

Serve between 10 and 12°C (50 and 54°F). Complex and well-balanced, Grand Siècle contains all the ingredients to enable it to match a wide range of refined dishes. It would provide the perfect foil to poultry with truffles, or to veal with wild mushrooms. One could also try it with fish such as red mullet or sea-bass. For a magnificent start to a festive meal, serve it as an aperitif.
