Laurent-Perrier - Grand Siècle - Iteration No. 25
Overview: Vintage in Champagne is usually synonymous with excellence for Prestige Cuvées. Contrarily, Laurent-Perrier has always been convinced that only the art of assemblage can offer what nature can never provide: the perfect year.
The expression of the perfect year is that of a great Champagne wine that over time has developed a depth, intensity and aromatic complexity, yet maintains its freshness and acidity. To create such a wine, Laurent-Perrier will rely on the characteristics of the great vintage years of Champagne: freshness, structure and finesse.
Grand Siècle’s assemblage is based on 3 principles that have now become immutable.
- A blend of 3 exceptional years, complementary in character.
- A blend with a majority of Chardonnay supplemented by Pinot Noir and selected among 11 of the 17 existing Grands Crus in Champagne.
- A blend benefiting from more than 10 years of ageing in the Cellars.
Tasting Notes: Brilliant in character with a white gold color. An intense nose of fresh citrus fruits followed by subtle aromas of grilled almonds and brioche. The wine has a fresh and toasted attack. The finish is persistent with notes of citrus fruit. Grand Siècle iteration Nº25 has exceptional aromatic depth.
Pairing: Grand Siècle can be enjoyed as an aperitif. The taste evolving in the glass reveals all the freshness and complexity of this great champagne wine. Grand Siècle pairs with high quality produce and refined dishes, particularly, noble fish and crustaceans.
