Description & Technical Information
-
Although originally founded in 1812, the name Champagne Laurent-Perrier was not conceived until 1964. It was Bernard de Nonancourt who initiated Laurent-Perrier's rise to world fame. One of Champagne's most important figures in the 20th century, he officially took over in 1948 after a three-year apprenticeship at the Houses of Delamotte and Lanson. In his 62-year tenure, production grew from 80,000 bottles annually to over eight million. Under de Nonancourt, Laurent-Perrier were the first House to use stainless-steel vats and the first House to create both a zero dosage champagne (Ultra Brut) and a multi-vintage prestige cuvée (Grand Siècle). Sadly, de Nonancourt passed away in 2010 and Laurent-Perrier is now managed by his two daughters, Alexandra and Stéphanie alongside Cellar Master Michel Fauconnet and has become one of the region's largest producers, they are perhaps best known for Cuvée Rosé, the most recognised rosé champagne on the planet. Since 2020 Alexandra's daughter, Lucie Pereyre de Nonancourt has taken on the global role of Brand Ambassador for Grand Siècle.

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.

This release is a blend of 2006 – 65% | 2004 – 20% | 2002 – 15%
From June 2019, new releases of Laurent-Perrier Grande Siecle MV will be labelled by their Iteration Number. Iteration No. 23 in magnum was released 26th October 2021.

Lees Ageing: 14 years

Tasting Note: This has an intense nose, slight smoky note #magnumeffect to begin and really intense lemon richness, with grapefruit and some redcurrant notes. With time in the glass, more flavours of brioche, grilled almonds and honey emerge. This Grand Siècle has a lightness and delicacy and is so refreshing. The magnums age for decades.

Expert Reviews

Jancis Robinson MW
“Blend of 2006 with 2004 and 2002. Magnum – which is always aged several years longer than the wine that is released in bottle. This is the current magnum (late release) that is just launched in the UK. Aged 14 years on lees. Disgorged in 2021.
Deep colour. Pungent – this wine really whisks up the nose! Very fresh. Really vivacious. Lots of energy. Very expressive. Fantastic!”
99/100
James Suckling
“Fabulous aromas of brioche, pie crust, lemon tart and fresh apple. Full-bodied, very dense and layered with freshness and energy that couples well with the palate. Powerful acidity gives great structure to this. Goes on for minutes. Extremely structured. Three vintages – 2006 (65%), 2004 (20%) and 2002 (15%). Blend of 58% chardonnay and 42% pinot noir. From 11 grand crus. Aged in magnums. One for the cellar. Available only magnum. In Europe from mid-October 2021. Drink or hold.”
95/100
Antonio Galloni
“The NV Brut Grande Cuvée Grand Siècle No. 23 (Magnum) is fascinating to taste within the context of the other wines in the series. The No. 23 is a decidedly vinous, ample Grande Siècle built on texture and resonance more than anything else. Lemon confit, lemon oil, marzipan, dried flowers and spice all flesh out as the wine opens up with air. The blend is 2006 (65%), 2004 (20%) and 2002 (15%). Disgorged May 27, 2019. (Originally published in August 2020)”

Essi Avellan MW
“This blend combines the generosity and voluptuousness of 2006 and 2002 to the racy finesse of 2004. This is truly a rich one, so creamy with age-mellowed power and lots of complexity waiting to gradually express itself in the glass. Notes of coffee with cream, white pepper, white flowers and gunpowder alongside the pear and apple fruitiness. Not the smokiest or tightest of the Grand Siècle magnums but a caressing one that sits at that perfect place between youth and maturity in magnums. 96 points today in magnums.”

    April 15, 2019

    "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.
