Laurent-Perrier was founded in 1812 by André Michel but it was his cellar master Eugene Laurent, who ran it with his wife, Mathilde Emilie Perrier. After Eugene's death in 1887, Mathilde combined the 2 names and Laurent-Perrier was born.
Post First World War I, Laurent-Perrier was very successful producing around 50,000 cases of Champagne unfortunately when war broke out the business was hit hard.
Mathilde hired Alexander Fletcher Keith Mackenzie to introduce and market Laurent-Perrier in the UK.
In 1925 Mathilde died leaving the company to her daughter Eugenie.
With another war looking likely Eugenie sold the company in 1939 to Mary-Louise Lanson de Nonancourt
In 1948 it was Mary-Louise's son Bernard who took over the reigns becoming Laurent-Perrier's Chairman and Chief Executive, he remained and important part of the business until his death in 2010.
Laurent-Perrier is one of the few Champagne house which are still family owned. Bernard's two daughters now oversee the running of the business, carrying on the work that Bernard did to produce one of the best Champagne brands.
To produce Laurent-Perrier's luxury cuvee, Bernard de Nonancourt decided to focus on the two mainstays of Champagne's know how: the blending of different crus (wines from separate villages) and from different harvest years.
The epitome of blending. Grand Siecle calls on wines from the finest growths and the very best harvests; years which have been declared as vintages by Laurent-Perrier.
Subtle hints of honey, hazelnuts, grilled almonds and fresh pastry on the nose. On the palate this wine is powerful, well rounded and has incredible length.
Perfect with the delicate taste of scallops and the aromatic power of truffles
