Laurent-Perrier Champagne Grand Siecle Iteration 24 Grande Cuvee [Pre-Arrival]
It is not an address that we typically offer. Still, the Grand Siecle from Laurent-Perrier is a fantastic and unique Champagne always assembled from three vintages to obtain "the perfect year." There have only been 24 iterations of Grande Siecle produced in 65 years compared to the 45 vintages claimed by all of Champagne. The 24th iteration is a blend of the vintages 2004, 2006, 2007 made of 55% Chardonnay from Le Mesnil‑sur‑Oger, Oger, Cramant, Avize, Chouilly, and 45% Pinot Noir from Ambonnay, Bouzy, Tours‑sur‑Marne, Mailly, Verzy, and Verzenay. The blend's idea is to take three vintages that complement each other with one newer vintage as a base, with two progressively older vintages. It's the only Champagne of its kind that is more about the blend than the vintages, and after assemblage, it spent 12 years aging and integrating. Galloni recently tasted this out of magnum and bumped his score up from 94 to 96, putting this in the same category as some very expensive, prestigious Champagnes. The 24th iteration of Grand Siecle is an excellent Tete de Cuvee that is worth checking out.

Antonio Galloni 96 points! (Tasted out of magnum) "The NV Brut Grande Cuvée Grand Siècle No. 24 (Magnum) is ethereal and beautifully lifted. White flowers, mint, white pepper and green orchard fruit all grace this exquisite, super-expressive Champagne. I would cellar the No. 24, as it is pretty tight today and also not ready to deliver the full Grand Siècle experience. The blend is 2007 (60%), 2006 (20%) and 2004 (20%), three vintages that are especially complementary. Disgorged May 27, 2019. (Originally published in August 2020)"
