The Cuvée Grand Siècle of the Laurent-Perrier House is a prestigious champagne wine, not only due to its bottle inspired by glass master of the 17th Century but as well to its content, an elegant and refined champagne. Made from 45% Pinot Noir and 55% Chardonnay from 10 of the most prestigious growths of Champagne, this is a blend of the greatest vintages produced by Laurent-Perrier. Its dress is of a bright yellow glod enhanced by a fine effervescence. The nose is intense and complex, marked by slightly candied citrus, toasted almonds and gingerbread. On the palate is is savory, of a good volume yet very aerial. The Cuvée Grand Siècle offers a perfect balance between strength and delicacy, thus radiating as much as Louis the 14th did: this wine indeed pays tribute to him.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The NV Grand Siècle Grande Cuvée is a Grand Cru Brut based on 55% Chardonnay and 45% Pinot Noir from a total of eleven villages. The youngest release is a blend of the (declared) vintages 2002, 1999 and 1998, and has a yellow-golden color that opens beautifully with a clear, deep and complex bouquet. It is pure, ripe and very elegant, mixing pain-aux-raisin and honey flavors with pure chalk. Ample, highly elegant, beautifully matured and fruit-intense, with fine caramel, honey and torrone flavors, this is a well-structured Grand Siècle with great finesse and delicate freshness. Awesome.
