Laurent-Perrier Grand Siècle NV Champagne

Laurent-Perrier is on a steep growth curve, with expansion in recent years now seeing the house ranked number five in Champagne by volume, but finding a comfortable equilibrium in that precarious balance between volume and finely tuned quality is what sets Laurent-Perrier apart. Launched in 1959, Grand Siècle's first release was a blend of vintages from 1952, 1953 and 1955. This demonstrates the house's exacting standards and know-how. It's 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 years.

The current release is a blend of 1997, 1999 and 2002, produced from grapes from 11 of Champagne's most prestigious Grand Crus, all rated 100%. The Chardonnays are from Avize, Chouilly, Cramant and Le Mesnil-sur-Oger; the Pinot Noirs are from Ambonnay, Bouzy, Louvois, Mailly, Tours-sur-Marne and Verzenay. The grape juice was fermented in stainless steel as they very much believe in keeping the juice away from oxygen and protecting those floral aromatics.

What you get in the glass is an intense nose, with floral hints, perfumed and rose character with hints of Turkish delight. Once it has had a few minutes in the glass you get more of those notes of brioche, grilled almonds, and subtle hints of honey. This Grand Siècle is refined, light and delicate; it will live for decades.

Grape Varieties: 55% Chardonnay, 45% Pinot Noir
Dosage: 8 g/L

“A fresh and mellow, supple Grand Siècle with understated elegance. Highly balanced in 75cl bottles even if not one of the most impressive blends. Starting to show signs of evolution. A wholly different story in magnum, which showed majestically at the 2014 CSWWC. The complexity and refinement was just mind-blowing. World Champion Deluxe Magnum, 96 points with further potential.”

“Creamy, yoghurt, peach, dried herbs and baked apple - lots going on here. Substantial and fragrant.”

“Deluxe Magnum. 55% Chardonnay, 45% Pinot Noir. From magnums based on the 1999 vintage (supplemented by the two previous vintages released by the house) - although the bottles of the concurrent release of this wine are apparently based on the 2002 vintage. In his notes on the wines, Stevenson observes how very different this wine tastes in bottle and magnum, even if the initial blends were identical. I loved the electric tension in this wine despite its relatively great age. Extremely well made.”

“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.”

“Light, bright gold. Mineral-accented scents of pear skin, orange pith and white flowers are lifted by a gingery nuance. Pliant, dense and rich, with palate-coating orchard fruit and spicecake flavors and a smoky mineral quality building with air. Weighty and broad but energetic, with bright minerality adding lift and cut to a strikingly persistent finish.”

“Laurent-Perrier’s prestige cuvée is always non-vintage, a blend of top years. The latest bottling is so elegant, definitely maturing from bottle aging and older vintages in the blend, but still worthy of aging in itself. It is dry, in the L-P style, but has richness, an intense pink grapefruit character, hints of cilantro, the final acidity a great shaft of light.”
