Laurent-Perrier Grand Siecle Brut Champagne Gift Set W 2 Glasses NV

External Review by WineExpress.com:

A stunning gift set with the Champagne ans two matching embossed glasses in a special gift box. This Champagne from Laurent Perrier celebrates Louis XIV's era known as the "Great Century". In a replica of a 17th Century bottle evoking the radiance of that period, Laurent-Perrier's prestige cuvée embodies luxury, magnificence and elegance fit for a king. Grand Siècle is made with a Pinot Noir and Chardonnay blend. Twelve of the most prestigious villages supply the grapes; all of them classified 100% Grands Crus. Some are Ambonnay, Verzenay, Mailly, Avize, Cramant, Chouilly and Le Mesnil-sur-Oger. Within the vineyards of these villages, only the very best plots are selected, as are the finest musts from the pressings. The blended wine is then aged during the second fermentation on the yeast for approximately five years. With top scores from all of the critics, Wine Enthusiast Magazine selected it as a Top 100 Cellar Selection for 2014. Scoring it 97 points, they said “Laurent-Perrier’s prestige cuvée has always been non-vintage, a blending of top wines from top years. It remains an exceptional wine, not quite dry and with a tinge of softness, but so elegant and balanced. This bottling has just the right amount of maturity, hinting at toast while guarding every iota of fruitiness.”

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
