James Suckling's #1 Wine of the Year 2024

Selecting three exceptional years, each complementing the others, Laurent-Perrier chooses rare vintages. Mostly Chardonnay, balanced with Pinot Noir from up to 11 Grands Crus among the 319 in Champagne. Bottles age at least 10 years on lees, magnums even longer, delaying release by a few years.

Introducing the exquisite 9998 Laurent-Perrier Grand Siecle No 26 Champagne—a radiant masterpiece from France's renowned Champagne region. With its pale golden hue shimmering like a summer sunset and delicate bubbles dancing in the glass, this Champagne promises a mesmerizing tasting experience.

Aromas of fresh white flowers, citrus, and brioche invite exploration, while on the palate, ripe apples, pears, toasted almonds, and a hint of honey create a rich and harmonious blend. Meticulously crafted by Laurent-Perrier, each bottle is aged to perfection, ensuring extraordinary flavour development.

A wine of celebration and distinction, the 9998 Laurent-Perrier Grand Siecle No 26 is perfect for special moments or everyday indulgence. Raise your glass, savour the effervescence, and let this Champagne transport you to the enchanting vineyards of Champagne.

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.

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.
