97 points Tyson Stelzer (The Champagne Guide): "(55% chardonnay from Avize, Cramant and Le Mesnil-sur-Oger; 45% pinot from Ambonnay, Bouzy and Mailly-Champagne; aged 7-8 years on lees). Even in its grand maturity, this wine displays great poise and definition. Crunchy grapefruit and nashi pear are accented with an enticing reductive note of gunflint. It simultaneously celebrates long lees age in layers of buttered toast, vanilla nougat and a creamy, silky texture amidst mineral-driven structure. It closes with excellent persistence, marked by subtle phenolic bitterness. (2018-2019)"

97 points James Suckling: "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. 2004, 2002 and 1999. Drink or hold. (9/2/19)"

96 points Wine Enthusiast: "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. Alcohol 12%. (Dec 2019)"

94 points William Kelley (Wine Advocate): "A blend of the 2007, 2006 and 2004 vintages that was disgorged some six months ago, the NV Brut Grand Siècle #24 will be released this April, and it's beginning to drink well, offering up a complex and already maturing bouquet of dried flowers, mandarin orange, iodine, gingerbread, clear honey and smoke. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, fleshy and vibrant, with an ample core of fruit complemented by abundant sapid nuances, bright acids and a fine but youthfully frothy mousse. This is an expressive rendition of Grand Siècle that will drink well on release. Drink: 2019-2029. (Apr 2019)"

94 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "Laurent-Perrier's NV Grande Cuvée Grand Siècle No. 24 is just starting to show the first signs of aromatic and flavor complexity, which makes it a very satisfying Champagne for current drinking. Hints of apricot, lemon confit, white flowers and marzipan grace this wonderfully vibrant, inviting edition of Grand Siècle built on the 2007, 2006 and 2004 vintages. The Grande Cuvée No. 24 is silky, perfumed and classy all the way. Time in the glass brings out the wine's freshness and energy. Drink: 2019-2029. (Jul 2019)"
