Laurent Perrier Grand Siecle Brut NV

£110.99

 TASTING NOTE

The Grand SiËcle is brilliant yellow in colour. Subtle hints of honey and
hazelnuts on the nose, with grilled almonds and a touch of fresh pastry
following on the palate. Powerful and well-rounded, this wine is rich
and savoury, finishing with a deliciously honeyed but fresh long finish.
Michel Fauconnet has identified the best twelve Crus or villages for
Chardonnay and Pinot Noir such as Ambonnay, Verzenay, Mailly,
Avize, Cramant, Choully and le Mesnil-sur-Oger; all of the twelve are
classified Grand Cru, that is the highest rating that Champagne
vineyards can achieve. From within these, only the finest micro-parcels
of grapes are taken.
There is a further sorting in the winery, where the top `CuvÈe` or
 free run juice is identified and sent to separately-housed fermentation vats.
After the first fermenation, the base wines are blended and then
bottled before being aged in the cellar for over five years to gain the
yeasty, autolytic character of bread, almonds and honey.
