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.”

Founded in 1812, Laurent-Perrier is recognised - throughout the world - as one of the finest of Champagne Houses. This success derives, first and foremost, from a clear determination to abide by long-established traditions: respect for nature and wine, dedication to quality, and strong and lasting relationships with all those associated with the company, within and without. It is also the result of the sheer driving force of Bernard de Nonancourt, the creator of the Laurent-Perrier range, and that of his daughters, Alexandra and Stéphanie, who are concentrating their own energies on preserving the Group’s independence and perpetuating its values.
