External Reviews for Laurent-Perrier Champagne Blend Champagne Grand Siècle Brut
Very fine, strong mousse Knockout, musky nose combines orange pith, honeysuckle, spices and chalk. Offers nearly painful intensity of lemon and wet stone flavor without any excess weight. Dense, extremely concentrated material is leavened by brilliant acidity. Wonderfully chewy and sappy in the middle palate and on the extremely long finish. It's hard to get this out of your mouth! Still, the wine's finishing austerity suggests that it's nowhere near its peak today. A great value in tete de cuvee Champagne.
High-toned ginger and citrus notes combine with warm baking bread and vanilla accents in this vivid, elegant Champagne. Distinctive, with a lingering, smoky, grainy aftertaste.
From the first sniff you know this is a refined and arrestingly complex wine, with a bouquet of subtly entwined layers mixing ripe fruits, mineral, leesy-cheesy accents, vanilla and even a bit of metal in the steely center. Three-dimensional flavors and a wonderful lightness on the palate make for an exceptional bottle.
Starry bright, with a brilliant yellow hue. Subtle hints of honey, hazelnuts, grilled almonds and fresh pastry make this a perfect wine to go with the finest dishes.
Deep green-gold with tiny bubbles, this multi-vintage blend contrasts freshness and oxidative elements. The scent is complex and heady, the flavor clean and sophisticated. Fine effervescence in the mouth cuts the richness and keeps it lively, light to the touch, almost transparent. Match the heady richness to roasted sweetbreads.
Mature, with a touch of scrambled egg and burnt sulfur on the dry bouquet. This one turns lean and crisp, with green apple and a hint of lemon on the nose palate. That said, therersquo;s still laudable depth of flavor and complexity. Overall the impression is largely of citrus.
This multivintage blend is Laurent-Perrierrsquo;s top cuveacute;e, a grand wine that needs decanting to show how it will meld and mellow with age. The scents of orange blossom and toasted lees are tightly wrapped in acidity, a hard edge that softens with air. For the cellar, and eventually for rich shellfish dishes.
