Laurent Perrier Grand Siecle 1985

Winemaker's Notes:

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. Powerful and yet well-rounded, this wine is rich and savoury, finishing with a deliciously fresh touch. The length of its flavours is remarkable. Grand Siècle shows a unique and balanced combination of depth and finesse. Serve between 10 and 12°C. Complex and well-balanced, Grand Siècle contains all the ingredients to enable it to match a wide range of refined dishes. It would provide the perfect foil to poultry with truffles, or to veal with wild mushrooms. One could also try it with fish such as red mullet or sea-bass. For a magnificent start to a festive meal, serve it as an aperitif.

Birth The House of Laurent-Perrier was founded in 1812 by André Michel Pierlot and took the name Vve Laurent-Perrier when Mathilde Emilie Perrier, the widow of Eugène Laurent, combined the two family names after she decided to expand the business. Eugénie Hortense Laurent, her daughter, inherited the House in 1925 and sold it to Marie-Louise Lanson de Nonancourt in 1939. Rebirth During WWII, Marie-Louise Lanson de Nonancourt ran the business while two of her sons, Maurice and Bernard, joined the French Resistance. In 1945, Bernard de Nonancourt began an exacting apprenticeship, learning every aspect of winemaking from vine to cellar, before his appointment in October 1948 as Chairman and Chief Executive. At that point, the House was employing around 20 people and shipping 80,000 bottles a year. Expansion Fired by a passion for champagne, a respect for traditional values and, most importantly, for people, Bernard de Nonancourt inspired Laurent-Perrier with his independent spirit and creative audacity. He established privileged working relationships with the grape growers and cleverly combined innovation and tradition. He created the signature Laurent-Perrier style of freshness, lightness and elegance and developed a unique range of champagnes which are today exported to more than 160 countries worldwide.   Read less

Die Besonderheit von Laurent-Perrier aus Tours-sur-Marne: eine Prestigecuvée ohne Jahrgang. Das Rezept: Die besten Cardonnay – und Pinot-noir-Trauben aus Grand Cru und aus drei hervorragenden Jahren werden geschickt miteinander vermählt. So reift über die Jahre ein komplexer, harmonischer Wein von großer Klasse heran: Auf ein intensiven Blütenduft folgt eine seltene Symphonie aus Opulenz und Sanftheit, die mit großer Vornehmheit ausklingt. Der Geniesser denkt an Kraft und Freiheit.

Eine elegante Reichhaltigkeit, die von Aromen von getrockneten Früchten, Haselnüssen und Brioche unterstrichen wird.

Ein feinperliger Wein in elegantem, lachsfarbenem Ton. Klares und sehr frisches Bukett mit einer breiten Duftpalette von roten Früchten. Am Gaumen fruchtige Aromen von Erdbeeren, Himbeeren und Sauerkirschen. Im Ansatz sehr klar und säuerlich-fruchtig. Ein weicher und runder Wein.

Grand Siècle 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 6 to 8 years.

Pale gold with a delicate and fine bead. Subtle spice and hints of citrus. Warm toasty notes balance the freshness of fruit. Medium bodied and very easy on the palate. Perfectly balanced: a soft mouthfeel belies the strong structure of the wine. Finishes clean yet delicately lingers.

Klassisches Bukett mit leicht hefigen Brotrindenaromen, angenehme Fruchtaromatik. Am Gaumen frische Aromen von grünen Äpfeln, finessenreich, ausgeglichen und körperreich, angenehm im Abgang.
