Laurent-Perrier Tasting Notes  
Starry bright, with a brilliant yellow hue. Subtle hints of honey, hazelnuts, grilled almonds and fresh pastry make this a perfect wine to go with the finest dishes. Powerful and yet well-rounded, this wine is rich and savoury, finishing with a deliciously fresh touch. The length of its flavours is remarkable. Grand Siècle shows a unique and balanced combination of depth and finesse. Serve between 10 and 12°C.
Wine Spectator  
Hints of tropical pineapple and papaya fruit mix with orange peel, smoke and spicy mineral flavors in this finely textured sparkler, balanced by firm, fresh acidity. A latent push of ripe fruit lingers on the finish. Drink now through 2015. 300 cases imported. 90 points
Wine Enthusiast  
Laurent-Perrierâ?'s prestige cuvée is always non-vintage, a blend of top years. The latest bottling is so elegant, definitely maturing from bottle aging and older vintages in the blend, but still worthy of aging in itself. It is dry, in the L-P style, but has richness, an intense pink grapefruit character, hints of cilantro, the final acidity a great shaft of light. 96 points
International Wine Cellar  
Medium straw color, with a vigorous mousse. Wonderfully expressive aromas of white flowers, peach, fresh pear, sweet butter and exotic magnolia blossom. Concentrated and deep, with fresh ripe apple, redcurrant and fruitcake flavors accented by a strong chalky note. This manages to be dense and lively at the same time, with a remarkable range of flavors. Powerful and almost painfully concentrated on the very long finish. This cuvee, which is in a new, black bottle with a small black label, is based on 1996 juice, with the addition of wines from 1995 and 1993, and may be the finest Grand Siecle cuvee I've yet encountered. 94 points
