Laurent-Perrier Grand Siecle No. 24 in Sun King Jacket
The idea of Grand Siècle is based on one observation: nature will probably never provide the perfect oenological year but thanks to the art of assemblage, Laurent-Perrier can in fact create it. Going far beyond rare vintages, Grand Siècle is the blending of three outstanding years declared as vintages by Laurent-Perrier and chosen for their complementary traits.
Grand Siècle is the unique expression of excellence in a champagne: “it is the blending of the best with the best to obtain the best”.
On the eye: Starry bright in character with a fine effervescence.
On the nose: An intense and complex nose of slightly candied fruits, followed by aromas of fresh pastry, grilled almonds, subtle hints of honey and gingerbread.
On the palate: Well-rounded and developed, the wine brings a feeling of fullness while its beautiful minerality leaves an outstanding sensation of freshness. Grand Siècle offers a perfect balance between strength and delicacy.
Grand Siècle pairs with high quality products and refined dishes, particularly surf & turf combinations, seafood and noble fish.
