Regarding the Champagne Laurent-perrier Grand Siècle itération N°25
Maison Laurent Perrier’s motto for the cuvée Grand siècle is « blending the best with the best to obtain the very best ». There’s nothing to add !
This iconic cuvée Grand Siècle Itération n°25 from Laurent Perrier embodies the perfect mastering of blending, elaborated from a majority of Chardonnay (60%) with Pinot Noir and sourced from 9 out of the 17 Grands Crus from 2008 (65%), 2007 (25%) and 2006 (10%). An exceptional champagne in many ways.
From its majestuous and elegant bottle yet, with a curved shape and slender neck. It pays homage to the know-how of the master glassmakers from the 17th century. Recalling the period of the Roi Soleil Louis XIV, Cuvée Grand Siècle celabrates the heyday of the arts, gastronomy, and the French lifestyle. Then, Grand Siècle’s wines are the result of 3 exceptional years, presenting complementary oenological profiles, and raised for a minimum of 10 years in cellar.
A gastronomic champagne which develops slightly honeyed peach aromas, smoked wood, iodine and musc. The wine is concentrated and of a impressive complexity on the palate. It offers riped red fruits aromas, with delicate bubbles, and a hint of chalk. The final is enticing. Freshness, intensity and minerality, the three great qualities of an exceptional champagne!
Grand Siècle must be enjoyed at the ideal temperature of 12°C, in order to unveil its outstanding aromatic depth. This cuvée is just dazzling with « earth and sea » dishes, such as poultry with crayfish, scallops with black truffle from Périgord region or white truffle from Alba.
