Laurent-Perrier Grand Siecle Iteration 24
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 24th time the house has created a blend of Grand Siécle.

The current release is a blend of 2007 (60%), 2006 (20%), 2004 (20%).

Weather: 2007: A year defined by its tumultuous climate and one of the earliest harvests (20th August) alongside 2003, 1947 and 1893. Direct, floral and citrus notes. Freshness and salinity best characterise this vintage.
2006: was an abundant harvest (7th September), Chardonnays were rich and complex with great balance, Pinot Noirs were rich with notes of red fruit, structure and power.
2004: a fortuitous harvest (18th September in the Marne, 2nd October in the Aisne) providing both quality and quantity, the Chardonnays showed great aromatic potential and balance. Pinot Noirs were of the highest quality.

A fresh and delicate attack with an impression of fullness, the finish is persistent displaying Grand Siècle’s perfect balance between strength and delicacy
