Its unique style combining finesse, power and balance is the outcome of blending the very best grapes from the most prestigious crus in wines from the best Laurent-Perrier vintage years.A majestic and refined bottle. Its singular shape is inspired by the work of the master glass-blowers of the 17th century. The curve of its shoulders is unique, as is the elegance of its slender swan’s neck, and is a re-creation of the hand-blown bottles used to contain the very first champagnes at the French royal court.As soon as one begins to pour the wine, the long neck murmurs a ‘song’ like no other.Grand Siècle, a name that celebrates the 17th century, the era of Louis XIV, the Sun King, was a time, which saw the flowering of the arts and the French art de vivre, and the birth of a new appreciation of fine food.Today presented in an extremely elegant gift box, Grand Siècle by Laurent-Perrier is a prestigious gift, much appreciated by connoisseurs; it is an ambassador for our uniquely French art of hospitality..An intense, complex nose of lightly candied citrus.
