- Other Info:
- Launched in 1959, Grand Siècle is Laurent-Perrier's Prestige Cuvée, the prime example of the House's exacting standards and know-how. Its 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 Laurent-Perrier vintage years.
The grapes for this Champagne were taken from twelve Grand Cru vineyards only. The handpicked grapes were whole-bunch pressed and the juice fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks with malolactic conversion encouraged. The wines were then blended together and bottled for secondary fermentation and a period of lees ageing of up to six years. After disgorgement only a light dosage was used before resealing and release.
- 'Laurent-Perrier has always preferred to keep its prestige cuvée as a nonvintage blend. With eight years aging after bottling and plenty of reserve wines in the blend, it is a mature wine that is yeasty and toasty in character. To go with that, there is great fruit from the blend that only comes from grand cru vineyards. It's ready to drink.' - Wine Enthusiast

What Laurent Perrier Cellar Master Michel Fauconnet says:
"Because of its perfect balance between power and delicacy, between aromatic intensity and standout freshness, Grand Siecle will harmonise perfectly with the delicate flesh and taste of scallops and the aromatic power of truffles. Served at an ideal temperature of 10c, Grand Siecle will achieve perfect harmony with this combination of sea and land."
