Laurent Perrier Grand Siecle Grande Cuvee Brut Champagne
Laurent-Perrier Grand Siecle Grande Cuvee Brut Champagne.A subtle version, focused more on delicate acidity and texture than the finely layered flavors of creamed apple, marzipan, pastry dough and black currant, with hints of lemon curd and ground spice. Delivers a lasting, smoke-tinged finish. Drink now through 2020. 93 Points Wine Spectator, November 2013.
A truly lustrous gold with a most delicate bead. Honeyed, nutty aromas with hints of almonds and freshly baked brioche. Very forward, yet continues to open for quite some time in the glass. Round and rich, with an amazing dichotomy of complex elegance and power.
50% Chardonnay, 50% Pinot Noir.
In the 17th Century, during the reign of Louis XIV, France enjoyed its most illustrious era. Louis XIV became known as the "Sun King" for his benevolence and his patronage of the Arts, which became the foundation of France's rich artistic heritage. At the Palace of Versailles Louis XIV was the first French King to drink Champagne.
Louis XIV's era became known as the Grand Siècle - the "Great Century". Bottled in a replica of a 17th Century bottle evoking the radiance of that period, Laurent-Perrier's prestige cuvées embody luxury, magnificence and elegance fit for a king.
When it came to his prestige cuvée, Bernard de Nonancourt decided to highlight two of Champagne's traditional realms of proficiency: the blending of different crus and different vintages. Grand Siècle is the epitome of Champagne cuvées, as it blends complementary wines from Laurent-Perrier's very best growths and most successful vintage years.
