Description

Far beyond rare vintages, Grand Siècle is the choice of not one but three exceptional years of harvest, with complementary aromatic profiles, vintage by Laurent-Perrier. This is what is known as the Iterations.

Grand Siècle Itération N°24 is a blend of the 2004, 2006 and 2007 harvests.

Its brilliant colour and fine effervescence and its aromas of pastries, roasted almonds with subtle notes of honey and gingerbread make it a perfect wine to pair with refined dishes.

For yourself or as a gift, its elegant gift box is suitable for all occasions.

Tasting notes

Brilliant colour with a fine effervescence.

An intense and complex nose of slightly candied citrus fruits. Then aromas of pastries, grilled almonds with subtle notes of honey and gingerbread.

The wine offers a savoury and evolving palate with an impression of fullness that satisfies the palate. The beautiful minerality leaves a remarkable impression of freshness: Grand Siècle offers a perfect balance between power and delicacy.

Food pairings

Grand Siècle should be drunk at 12°C, to best express its incredible aromatic depth. It goes well with truffled poultry or braised veal shank. Also to be discovered with noble fish such as turbot or sea bass. Served as an aperitif before a festive meal, it gives it a sumptuous note from the start.

Ideal serving temperature : Grand Siècle should be drunk at a temperature of 12°C, to best express its incredible aromatic depth.

Characteristics : Launched in 1959 by Bernard de Nonancourt, Grand Siècle is Laurent-Perrier's grand cuvée, and is the signature of the Champagne House's know-how and high standards in blending. A Champagne cuvée by definition, Grand Siècle is the result of a blend of balanced wines from both the greatest vintages and particularly successful years vintage by Laurent-Perrier.
