With a bright, youthful appearance, Grand Siecle No 26 unfurls gradually to display crystalline, honeyed notes of candied peel, ginger and quince, with an understated scent of the seaside Bright, with needle-sharp definition on the palate incredibly precise but neither hard nor hard work On the finish, it fans out to a peacock's tail of orange zest, lemon drizzle cake, ginger syrup, an umami richness like lobster bisque, and a tiny hint of grapefruit pith Going against received wisdom in Champagne, LaurentPerrier believes that the art of assemblage can offer what nature can never provide the perfect vintage Grand Siecle is always a combination of three great vintages, and iteration No 26 combines 65% of 2012 with 25% 2008 and 10% 2007 The wine comes from specially selected plots within eight Grands Crus 58% Chardonnay from Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Oger, Cramand and Avise, and 42% Pinot Noir from Tours-sur-Marne, Ambonnay, Bouzy and Verzy The bottled wine is aged on the lees for 10 years prior to finishing and release
