Birth The House of Laurent-Perrier was founded in 1812 by André Michel Pierlot and took the name Vve Laurent-Perrier when Mathilde Emilie Perrier, the widow of Eugène Laurent, combined the two family names after she decided to expand the business. Eugénie Hortense Laurent, her daughter, inherited the House in 1925 and sold it to Marie-Louise Lanson de Nonancourt in 1939. Rebirth During WWII, Marie-Louise Lanson de Nonancourt ran the business while two of her sons, Maurice and Bernard, joined the French Resistance. In 1945, Bernard de Nonancourt began an exacting apprenticeship, learning every aspect of winemaking from vine to cellar, before his appointment in October 1948 as Chairman and Chief Executive. At that point, the House was employing around 20 people and shipping 80,000 bottles a year. Expansion Fired by a passion for champagne, a respect for traditional values and, most importantly, for people, Bernard de Nonancourt inspired Laurent-Perrier with his independent spirit and creative audacity. He established privileged working relationships with the grape growers and cleverly combined innovation and tradition. He created the signature Laurent-Perrier style of freshness, lightness and elegance and developed a unique range of champagnes which are today exported to more than 160 countries worldwide.   Read less

A rich, nutty, and biscuity tete de cuvee Champagne.

Very fine, strong mousse Knockout, musky nose combines orange pith, honeysuckle, spices and chalk. Offers nearly painful intensity of lemon and wet stone flavor without any excess weight. Dense, extremely concentrated material is leavened by brilliant acidity. Wonderfully chewy and sappy in the middle palate and on the extremely long finish. It's hard to get this out of your mouth! Still, the wine's finishing austerity suggests that it's nowhere near its peak today. A great value in tete de cuvee Champagne.

High-toned ginger and citrus notes combine with warm baking bread and vanilla accents in this vivid, elegant Champagne. Distinctive, with a lingering, smoky, grainy aftertaste.

This multivintage blend is Laurent-Perrierrsquo;s top cuveacute;e, a grand wine that needs decanting to show how it will meld and mellow with age. The scents of orange blossom and toasted lees are tightly wrapped in acidity, a hard edge that softens with air. For the cellar, and eventually for rich shellfish dishes.

Starry bright, with a brilliant yellow hue. Subtle hints of honey, hazelnuts, grilled almonds and fresh pastry make this a perfect wine to go with the finest dishes.

The new release of this wine is a blend of the rsquo;88, rsquo;90 and rsquo;93 vintages. Very fine, strong mousse. Knockout, musky nose combines orange pith, honeysuckle, spices and chalk. Offers nearly painful intensity of lemon and wet stone flavor without any excess weight. Dense, extremely concentrated material is leavened by brilliant acidity. Wonderfully chewy and sappy in the middle palate and on the extremely long finish. Itrsquo;s hard top get this out of your mouth! Still, the winersquo;s finishing austerity suggests that itrsquo;s nowhere near its peak today. A great value in tecircte de cuveacute;e Champagne.

From the first sniff you know this is a refined and arrestingly complex wine, with a bouquet of subtly entwined layers mixing ripe fruits, mineral, leesy-cheesy accents, vanilla and even a bit of metal in the steely center. Three-dimensional flavors and a wonderful lightness on the palate make for an exceptional bottle.

Mature, with a touch of scrambled egg and burnt sulfur on the dry bouquet. This one turns lean and crisp, with green apple and a hint of lemon on the nose palate. That said, therersquo;s still laudable depth of flavor and complexity. Overall the impression is largely of citrus.
