#55 Wine Enthusiast Top 100 of 2018

Laurent-Perrier has always preferred to keep its prestige cuvée as a nonvintage blend. With eight years aging after bottling and plenty of reserve wines in the blend, it is a mature wine that is yeasty and toasty in character. To go with that, there is great fruit from the blend that only comes from grand cru vineyards. It's ready to drink.

95 Tasting Panel

Lush and rounded with elegant fruit, creamy texture and depth; rich, balanced and ripe with considerable finesse and medium weight style; long, complex and quite brilliant.

94 Wine Spectator

An animated Champagne. The vibrant, crystalline frame of acidity and the finely detailed mousse support rich hints of toasted brioche and briny mineral, layered with flavors of Jonagold apple, candied lemon zest, spun honey and ripe blackberry. Sleek and racy on the lasting, spiced finish.

93 Decanter

A youthful but beautiful Grand Siecle that will be even better with further age. With extra time in the glass we found clean notes of bedsheets dried in the summer wind together with light green apple notes and toast. Refreshing attack and soft lingering beautiful mousse.

93 Wine & Spirits

This represents the firm's top selection of Chardonnay (55 percent of the blend, from Avize, Chouilly, Cramant, and Le Mesnil-sur-Oger) and Pinot Noir (from Ambonnay, Bouzy, Louvois, Mailly, Tours-sur-Marne and Verzenay). It's a luxurious and stylized Champagne, wearing its tete-de-cuvee status in the perfumed scent and the satin-rich texture. The Pinot Noir speaks powerfully, with austere red fruit and brisk, miner-inflected length of flavor.
