Grand Siècle Magnum, 1990
1 (1 x 1) 1500ml
Laurent-Perrier, one of Champagne’s leading houses, was founded in 1812. The house was ‘reborn’ in 1948 when Bernard de Nonancourt was appointed Chairman and Chief Executive of Laurent-Perrier. The signature house style was created by Bernard which can be described as fresh, light and elegant, and this is done by using a higher percentage of Chardonnay grapes.
Produced from 45% Pinot Noir and 55% Chardonnay from 10 of the most prestigious Grand Cru vineyards. Grand Siècle is normally produced from three recent outstanding harvest years, but this is a vintage wine from the excellent 1990.

Medium orange-gold color. Musky, wild aromas of strawberry, raspberry, smoke and earth; rather pinot noir-like and expressive of its soil. Rich, ripe and dense with material but not at all heavy; red berry flavors offer a compellingly tangy quality. Very concentrated and still very young. Finishes with superb lift and length. - Steve Tanzer Vinous.com 94/100 (2001)

The Grand Siècle showed some appealing but hard to describe developed character on the nose but what really impressed was the integrity of the citrus fruit on the palate. Pure and perfectly delineated and wonderfully intact despite the wine being 21 years old. - Christian Eeedes Winemag.co.za (2011)
