Laurent-Perrier, Grand Siècle Iteration No.23 NV

RRP £376

This blend beautifully marries the generosity and voluptuousness of 2006 and 2002 with the racy finesse of 2004. This is truly a rich iteration, so creamy with age-mellowed power and with lots of complexity waiting to express itself in the glass. Notes of coffee with cream, white pepper, white flowers and gunpowder alongside the pear and apple fruitiness. Not the smokiest or tightest of the Grand Siècle magnums but a caressing one that sits at that perfect place between youth and maturity. (Tasted en magnum.)
