To produce Laurent-Perrier's luxury cuvee, Bernard de Nonancourt decided to concentrate on two of the mainstays of Champagne's know-how: the blending of different crus (wines from separate villages) and from different harvest years.

The epitome of Champagne blending, Grand Siecle calls on wines from the finest growths and the very best harvests; years which have been declared as vintages by Laurent-Perrier. Made to be given or shared with friends and family, it is a very seductive Champagne, totally enjoyable.

Grand Siecle is a blend of pinot noir and chardonnay, with the latter being slightly dominant. The grapes are supplied by twelve of the most prestigious crus or villages, all of them Grands Crus classified at 100%, such as Ambonnay, Verzenay, Mailly, Avize, Cramant, Chouilly and Le Mesnil-sur-Oger. Within the vineyards of these crus, only the very best plots are selected, as are the finest musts from the pressings. The blended wine is then aged for about 5 years.

It is brilliant yellow in colour, and has subtle aromas of honey, hazelnuts, grilled almonds and brioche, making it the perfect companion for refined dishes. It also pairs wonderfully with poultry and truffles as with veal and morel mushrooms.
