Founded in 1812, the Laurent-Perrier Champagne House reached its golden age in 1948, thanks to Bernard de Nonancourt's dynamism. Under the leadership of this visionary businessman, the house stood out by producing vintages that reflected its values of excellence and innovation.
Since its very beginnings, the house has built its identity around Chardonnay. Through the freshness and finesse that it brings to the blend, this grape variety has become the signature style of this Champagne reference.
Laurent-Perrier's avant-garde approach is reflected in Grand Siecle and its multi-vintage blends, its Ultra Brut with a "zero dosage" style and also its Cuvee Rose, the first rosé champagne in this category. These original "breakthrough" cuvees, each creation being subject to an event, mark a new page in the history of Laurent Perrier and its quest for excellence, for which it is internationally renowned.
The quintessence of Bernard de Nonancourt’s cherished values are in the Laurent-Perrier cuvees, unanimously recognized by connoisseurs.
The Cuvee Grand Siecle is made from a selection of 11 of the 17 Grands Crus of the Champagne region. The Cuvee Grand Siecle is made from the prestigious vineyards of the Côte des Blancs: Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Avize, Cramant and Oger, and from the Grands Crus vineyards of the Montagne de Reims: Ambonnay, Bouzy, Verzy, Mailly and Tours-sur-Marne.
Grand Siecle by Laurent-Perrier is a prestige cuvee that focuses on the blend and not on the vintage. Laurent-Perrier pushes the blending requirements even further and believes that it is possible to recreate the perfect oenological year, one that would conjure up the ideal balance between the different organoleptic properties.
