Grand Siècle is a Prestige Cuvée that is a unique concept. It is the only Cuvée de Prestige in Champagne based on the blend and not on the vintage. It is a blend of three vintages - each release called Iterations. Only 24 iterations have been produced in 65 years compared to the 45 vintages declared for Champagne. This Iteration (No. 24) is composed of 55% Chardonnay and 45% Pinot Noir from a selection of 11 of the 17 existing Grand Crus in Champagne then benefiting from more than 10 years of aging in the Cellars.

"A fantastic prestigious cuvée this year with a solid core of fruit that makes it so serious and structured. Like a grand cru Burgundy. Full body. Lightly chewy. Phenolic tension gives it form and beauty. This is the first year to use numbers. 55% chardonnay and 45% pinot noir. 2007, 2006 and 2004. Drink or hold." 97 points - James Suckling (30 Jul, 2019)

"The NV Brut Grande Cuvée Grand Siècle No. 24 (Magnum) is ethereal and beautifully lifted. White flowers, mint, white pepper and green orchard fruit all grace this exquisite, super-expressive Champagne. I would cellar the No. 24, as it is pretty tight today and also not ready to deliver the full Grand Siècle experience. The blend is 2007 (60%), 2006 (20%) and 2004 (20%), three vintages that are especially complementary. Disgorged May 27, 2019. (Originally published in August 2020)" 96 points - Antonio Galloni (Vinous,  August 2020)

"A grand wine, this is the 24th blend of Grand Siécle, the producer's top cuvée. With wonderful toastiness, the Champagne from grand cru vineyards is at a perfect moment of maturity. Almonds mingle with the white fruits and acidity in perfect balance. Drink now." 96 points - Roger Voss (Wine Enthusiast, Dec. 2019)
