See Decanter experts' tasting notes and drinking window for Laurent-Perrier, Grand Siècle.
Always based on three vintages, the forthcoming release of this prestige cuvée is a blend of 1997, ’99 and ’02 and currently tastes almost ethereal in its delicacy. It is still incredibly young but with a complex array of flavours: white flowers, honey, bread, lemon rind and red pear. There’s also minerality, precision and freshness to let it age gracefully.
