Description & Technical Information
-
The idea of Grand Siècle was born from a simple observation: that nature would never provide the perfect oenological year, but that thanks to the art of assemblage, Laurent-Perrier could in fact create it. Always a blend of three exceptional vintages that perfectly complement each other, Grand Siècle was launched in 1959 as a blend of 1952, 1953 and 1955. One year is chosen for structure, one for finesse and one for freshness, creating a unique combination of power and balance from wines of the very best vintages. The grape juice is fermented in 100% stainless-steel tanks as Laurent-Perrier very much believe in keeping the juice away from oxygen and protecting those floral aromatics. Iteration is blended from 11 Grands Crus. From June 2019, L-P introduced 'Iterations' to identify the blend of Grand Siécle. This is the 17th time the house has created a magnum blend of Grand Siécle.

This current release is a blend of 1995 (60%), 1993 (20%), 1990 (20%) and is a late release Grand Siècle with around double the length of lees ageing compared to around 10 years for the Iteration 24 release.

Weather: 1995: Noted for its freshness and high quality Chardonnays and full-bodied, complex Pinots Noirs with intense aromas.
1993: Noted for its finesse with Chardonnays that were lively and fine with very fresh aromas and beautifully structured Pinots Noirs
1990: Noted for its exceptional richness and good acidity. It was characterised by its freshness with very aromatic Chardonnays and Pinots Noirs of high quality, freshness and power with combined to make an outstanding vintage.

    "Everything is good, my work now is to find which ones are very good." Laurent-Perrier had a successful harvest in 2018, a year which Chef de Cave Michel Fauconnet believes will most certainly produce a stunning vintage champagne and hopefully a strong Alexandra Rosé as well.
