    Laurent Perrier Grand Siecle No. 26 Champagne, a masterful creation by the acclaimed winery, unveils an enchanting symphony of flavors within an elegant white gold hue, adorned with delicate, persistent bubbles. This exquisite blend presents an intricate bouquet, harmoniously weaving together alluring aromas of honeysuckle, lemon, clementine, and fresh butter, further embellished by nuances of hazelnut and a touch of honey.

    On the palate, the wine unfolds with a delicate freshness, exuding the enchanting essence of candied lemon and fresh hazelnut, while revealing a silky, mineral texture enhanced by notes of honeysuckle, flaked almonds, and clementine. Balancing finesse and complexity, Grand Siecle No. 26 is a testament to Laurent Perrier’s unwavering commitment to crafting exceptional Champagne.

    This extraordinary vintage, praised by experts including Jancis Robinson and James Suckling, showcases a symphonic blend of 2012, 2008, and 2007, accentuating the wine’s electric vibrancy and meticulous balance. A true embodiment of luxury, this Champagne pairs exquisitely with high-quality produce and refined dishes, offering an unparalleled tasting experience that lingers long after the last sip.

    With a staggering 19.5/20 points from Jancis Robinson, the Champagne is praised for its powerful aroma of orange peel and a dense yet filigree texture, culminating in enormous finesse and a lingering mouthful of pleasure.

    James Suckling bestows a perfect 100 points, lauding the wine’s complexity with aromas of fresh and dried ginger, subtle pie crust, and salted caramel, accompanied by a full-bodied yet balanced palate brimming with energy and a symphonic blend of 2012, 2008, and 2007.

    Decanter, awarding it 96 points, extols the wine’s perfect fusion of 2012’s fruit generosity and 2008’s tautness, crafting a delicately rendered yet impeccably shaped Champagne with a sleek, silky mousse.

    Earning 96 points from both Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate and Vinous, the Champagne is commended for its rich, concentrated flavors, tightly wound structure, and intense, enduring finish, while Wine Spectator, with 95 points, praises its graceful profile, racy acidity, and enduring mineral hints, culminating in a captivating, sophisticated tasting experience.

    Critical Acclaim

    WS 95
    Wine Spectator
    A graceful Champagne, with flavors of boysenberry and black cherry fruit, toast, blanched almond and grapefruit pith, graphite and fleur de sel gliding across the satiny mousse. Reveals racy acidity that sculpts fine definition, allowing the detailed profile to expand on the palate, while minerally hints of chalk and oyster shell linger on the finish.
    WA 96
    Wine Advocate
    Unfurling in the glass with scents of crisp nectarine, pear and honeyed citrus fruit that mingle with notions of fresh mint, blanched almonds and iodine, the wine is full-bodied, concentrated and tightly wound, with broad structural shoulders, tangy acids and a long, intense finish. It's a great Grand Siècle in the making.
    DEC 96
    Decanter
    This iteration of Grand Siècle is almost entirely composed of two of Champagne's greatest recent vintages, so expectations are high. The wine more than meets them, tempering the generosity of 2012's fruit – ripe apricots, white peach, clementines and sunny, zesty citrus – with a pitch-perfect streak of 2008 tautness and structure. There are some fleshy, creamy notes of papaya and toasted white sourdough, but everything is as delicately rendered as expected and impeccably shaped, with a sleek, silky mousse. A little more approachable than Itération No. 25, it will welcome extended bottle age rather than demand it. The blend is 58% Chardonnay and 42% Pinot Noir from eight grand cru vineyards. 65% is from the 2012 vintage, 35% from 2008 and 10% from 2007.

    James Suckling
    This is really something. Electric on the palate. The aromas are so complex with sliced fresh and dried ginger, subtle pie crust, tarte tatin and hints of nutmeg with some salted caramel. Toasted bread, too. Always subtle. The palate is full- to medium-bodied yet hemmed-in with a freshness and balance that draws you back. Savory and vibrant. It's full of energy. Spectacular. Fascinating. Symphonic blend of 2012, 2008 and 2007. 65% of the 2012, 25% of the 2008 and 10% of the 2007. Eight grand cru. Chardonnay 58% and 42% pinot noir. Disgorged February 2023. 10 years on the lees. 7g/L dosage.

    Vinous
    The NV Grande Cuvée Grand Siècle No. 26, a blend of 2012, 2008 and 2007, is absolutely gorgeous. Dried pear, smoke, crushed rocks and mint infuse a super-expressive, creamy Grand Siècle built on textural richness and resonance, with Chardonnay brightness very much front and center. I tasted the no. 26 from a trial disgorgement. Even in the early going, it is extremely promising.
    JCR 19.5/20
    Jancis Robinson
    Powerful aroma of orange peel and something in the putty/chalk spectrum. It somehow manages to be both tight yet approachable, dense in terms of flavour concentration yet filigree in terms of texture. As usual, it's so Chardonnay! Overriding citrus character and quite amazingly long, a mouthful tingling on the palate for minutes not seconds. Enormous finesse. Massive pleasure. This would make the most luxurious aperitif. Michel Fauconnet, having welcomed the new chef de cave in January 2023, must be especially proud of this wine
