Champagne Grand Siècle - Laurent Perrier
The Cuvée Grand Siècle (GC for the intimate) by Laurent Perrier is an exception among the great cuvées of Champagne.
It is the only one not to be systematically vintage. This is a blend of 3 complementary vintages. One will bring freshness, the other the structure and the last aromatic.
"The Grand Siècle cuvée is like a box of chocolate, you never know what you're gonna get" said a wise man one day.
To help you see a little more clearly, there are three packaging for three different production periods.
- Bottles with golden labels (Sun King style) and colored caps produced until 1996
- Full black "Arum" bottles, two shiny labels produced between 1996 and 2000
- Full black bottles, matte label produced since.
Numerous collector's edition variants or number of cuvées N ° 17, N ° 24 have since been added, but that's another story.
WUAT's opinion: Clearly the best price / pleasure ratio of the great vintages. You wish to discover or make discover the world of great Champagne, it is with this cuvée that it is necessary to do it.
The GC appeals as much to the great amateurs and connoisseurs of champagnes as to the discoverers, you know those who "don't like Champagne because it stings the nose and it foams in the belly" 100% conversion to date for our friends.
Little more not insignificant, this cuvée ages magnificently well, the "Arum" produced more than 20 years ago are still very fresh, a pure wonder.
