A bottle of Laurent Perrier's Grande Cuvee Champagne, with its unique and refined bottle shape, contained in a luxury Black Laurent Perrier branded Gift Box. The Grand Siècle style combines finesse, power and balance. Comprising approximately 55% Chardonnay and 45% Pinot Noir, Grand Siècle by Laurent-Perrier is a blend of 11 of Champagne’s most prestigious grands crus, all rated 100 %.

 

The Chardonnays are from Avize, Chouilly ,Cramant, and Le Mesnil-sur-Oger. The Pinots Noirs are from Ambonnay, Bouzy, Louvois, Mailly, Tours-sur-Marne, and Verzenay.  From these grands crus, only the best grapes from the best plots are selected in the best Laurent-Perrier vintage years.  Blending Grand Siècle by Laurent-Perrier calls for exceptional know-how.  It is a new challenge with every new cuvée: a new creation perpetuating the Grand Siècle style. ‘With Grand Siècle by Laurent-Perrier, what we are looking for is the perfect balance between fine structure, elegance and freshness, even when the cuvée is at its most developed.’ Michel Fauconnet, Cellar Master Cuvée Grand Siècle by Laurent-Perrier benefits from long cellar ageing of seven to eight years, and sometimes more if the cellar master deems it necessary, with an additional two years for the magnums.

 

In the glass:

A fine bead, giving off delicate aromas. A bright yellow colour and an extremely refined texture.

On the Nose:

An intense, complex nose of lightly candied citrus. This is followed by notes of brioche, grilled almonds, and subtle hints of honey and gingerbread, shot through with white flowers.

In the Mouth:

A silky palate and a sensation of plenitude. With its fine minerality, a remarkable impression of freshness. Then a final note which surprises by its lingering aroma.

 

Because of its perfect balance between power and delicacy, and between aromatic intensity and standout freshness,Grand Siècle by Laurent-Perrier is open to multiple food pairings. It naturally accompanies the most refined foods and dishes. It magnifies the taste experience of a noble fish such as turbot, and pairs admirably with sea/land combinations such as chicken with crawfish or truffled scallops.

 

The recommended serving temperature is 10°C and tulip-shaped wine glasses are to be preferred to flutes to ensure maximum pleasure from the sensory encounter with this great Cuvée. What Laurent-Perrier Cellar Master Michel Fauconnet says : "Because of its perfect balance between power and delicacy, between aromatic intensity and standout freshness, Grand Siècle will harmonise perfectly with the delicate flesh and taste of the scallops and the aromatic power of the truffles. Served at an ideal temperature of 10°C, Grand Siècle will achieve perfect harmony with this combination of sea and land."

The House of Laurent-Perrier was founded in 1812 by André Michel Pierlot and took the name Vve Laurent-Perrier when Mathilde Emilie Perrier, the widow of Eugène Laurent, combined the two family names after she decided to expand the business.

Eugénie Hortense Laurent, her daughter, inherited the House in 1925 and sold it to Marie-Louise Lanson de Nonancourt in 1939.

 

Grand Siècle expresses the quintessence of champagne and French refinement Launched in 1959, Grand Siècle is Laurent-Perrier’s Prestige Cuvée, the prime example of the House’s exacting standards and know-how. Its unique style combining finesse, power and balance is the outcome of blending the very best grapes from the most prestigious crus in wines from the best Laurent-Perrier vintage years.

 

In 1955, Bernard de Nonancourt conceived the idea of creating a Grande Cuvée that would cut across the conventions of the time, under which a prestige cuvée automatically had to be from a single vintage year. For him, Laurent-Perrier’s Grande Cuvée had to offer a unique style exemplifying the art of blending taken to the extreme: ‘The best of the best with the best,’ as he liked to say. The champagne cuvée par excellence, Grand Siècle is a blend of wines from three great Laurent-Perrier vintage years made from the finest crus and grapes.
