Laurent-Perrier Grand Siècle Iteration N°23 Champagne 150cl
The Idea of Grand Siècle is based on a single observation: nature will never provide the perfect oenological year but thanks to the art of assemblage, Laurent-Perrier can in fact create it.
Grand Siècle applies the following four rules:
- Blending of a section of 3 exceptional years
- Blending of a section of 11 of the 17 existing Grand Crus in Champagne
- A blend made from a base year ( the youngest ) and 2 additional years.
- A blend with a majority of chardonnay supplemented by Pinot Noir and benefiting from more than 10 years of aging in the cellars.

Laurent-Perrier Grand Siècle is the inspiration of one man: Bernard de Nonancourt. A nature will probably never provide the perfect oenological year, for Bernard, the art of assemblage allows the creation of this ideal.
Grand Siècle blends the best with the best. Up to 11 of the 17 of the Grand Crus of Champagne from only hand-ticked plots and selected from exceptional years and chosen for their complementary traits to provide structure, freshness and finesse in perfect harmony.
At the Palace of Versailles Louis XIV was the first French King to drink Champagne. Louis XIV's era became known as the Grand Siecle - The "Great Century". Bottled in a replica of a 17th Century bottle evoking the radiance of that period, Laurent-Perrier's prestige cuveé embodies luxury, magnificence and elegance fit for a king.
