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 Read more »

  • Laurent-Perrier Brut Cuvée Rose Champagne

    Snoothrank:

    Pleasant cranberry and cherry fruit aromas with dried clay and light savory biscuit notes. Creamy mouthfeel with tart fruit and fresh refreshing acidity, raspberry cherry and cranberry fruit, a pop of zesty spice and a burst of acidity on the mid palate yield to a finish of toast and smoke, mixed berry and grapefruit.93 pts Read More

  • Laurent-Perrier.......GOOD THINKING.....VIN0VIN0I was just saying today, to my RUINART friend on FACEBOOK, that years ago, in the mid-1990's, a respectable Wine Merchant in London, England, told me to get into Laurent-Perrier, instead of sticking to the much-loved Moet & Chandon and I certainly did!  No regrets!Though a wealthy friend of mine al...

  • Most likely will start with a little Laurent-Perrier bubbly and some light apps.  Picked up two awesome looking filets to grill and we'll oven roast some kale, red potatoes and poblano.  Trying to decide which one of these '05s to  open to go with the steaks:Terrazas de Los Andes Cheval des Andes, orTablas Creek Esprit de Beaucastel Which do you...

  • I love a good value when it comes to sparkling wine, but there are so many occasions that warrant higher price points. In fact, purpose is the single most important part of any sparkling wine purchase. Is it a romantic affair or a graduation? Is it Thanksgiving or a retirement party? Will you be present when the bottle is opened? Generally speak... Read More

  • Played in our Fall Member-Guest golf tourney this weekend with my brother. We won our flight but didn't do as well in the playoff. Still a good showing so I opened another bottle of the Laurent-Perrier champs for a pre-dinner celebration. Then took a bottle of '12 Chalk Hill cab blend to the dinner. This is still young, layers of ripe dark fruit... Read More

  • So we started the evening with our friends by popping (sorry BLM, didn't ... one) a very nice bubbly of Laurent Perrier. With the apps, we moved on to a really nice bottle of Scherrer chardonnay and had the Apsara whole cluster Las Madres syrah with dinner.  All three bottles were quite excellent.  Good food + good wine + good friends = good t...

  • I was recently challenged to find a wine that would match a delicate dessert and continue to drink well into those lazy, mellow moments that follow every memorable meal. There were several contenders but I went for Demi-Sec Champagne. Controversial I know but most Houses produce Demi-Sec including Moet et Chandon, Taittinger, Veuve Clicquot, Lan... Read More
