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 vinous style racy and austere displaying dried berry pencil shaving and citrus aromas and flavors. It s full of finesse and bracing on the finish but the intensity is there. Best with food. Drink now through 2012. Wine Spectator.

There have only been 5 vintages of this Champagne made. The first was created as a gift from winery proprietor, Bernard de Nonancourt, to his eldest daughter for her wedding in 1982. This Rosé is 80% Pinot Noir and 20% Chardonnay. The depth of fruit is astounding recalling strawberry and currants. A Champagne for the ages.
