    Delving into Grand Siècle by Laurent-Perrier

    Take part in the ultimate Grand Siècle experience! David Hesketh MW will guide you on a journey through the Grand Siècle range by Laurent-Perrier. In this exclusive session, you will discover how ‘assemblage’ is crucial in crafting this unique multi-vintage Prestige Cuvée.

    Inspired by wine styles that combined the vibrancy of youth with the complexity of maturity, he believed nature in form of a single vintage was incapable of achieving his vision. Contrary to the norm in the 1950s when prestige cuvéestended to be single vintage Bernard innovates by blending three vintages and so creating a multi-vintage prestige cuvée. Central to realising this vision are: a majority of Chardonnay, blending three outstanding vintages, selecting only grapes from a limited number of Grands Crus and prolonged lees ageing prior to release. Grand Siècle was first released in 1959 and to date the House has released only 25 blends, called « Iterations », where the vision of this perfection is recreated every time.
