James recently tasted the Laurent-Perrier Champagne Grand Siècle Grand Cuvée N.23 NV Magnum, which impressed him so much he said to Lucie Pereyre de Nonacourt, who represents the fourth generation at Champagne Laurent-Perrier, and Edouard Cossy, the company's global director: "The aromas were amazing. Honestly, I can't think of a more beautiful Champagne with the aromas... that sort of brioche and tarte au limon."
