Laurent-Perrier Grand Siecle No. 25 in Sun King Cage
The idea of Grand Siècle is based on one observation: nature will probably never provide the perfect oenological year but thanks to the art of assemblage, Laurent-Perrier can in fact create it. Going far beyond rare vintages, Grand Siècle is the blending of three outstanding years declared as vintages by Laurent-Perrier and chosen for their complementary traits.
Grand Siècle No.25 is a blend of 2012 (65%), 2008 (25%) and 2007 (10%) vintages.
On the eye: A white gold color with delicate and persistent bubbles.
On the nose: A very complex nose which mixes honeysuckle, lemon, clementine and fresh butter aromas, followed by notes of hazelnut and a touch of honey.
On the palate: The attack in the mouth is very delicate and fresh with candied lemon and fresh hazelnut aromas. The palate is silky and mineral with notes of honeysuckle, flaked almonds and clementine.
Grand Siècle pairs with high quality produce and refined dishes, particularly fine cuts of meat, fish, shellfish and truffles.
