Since 1812, Laurent Perrier have built a reputation as one of France’s finest Champagne houses, and are now amongst the biggest in the world. Not a bad effort for a Champagne house that has always been family owned and fiercely independent. The house was set up by Mathilde-Emilie Perrier in Tours-Sur-Marne, and after marrying Eugene Laurent, the company name was born.
Mathilde guided the champagne house through the early years of the 20th Century and the ravages of World War I. On her death in 1925, Eugenie Laurent inherited the company, but was unable to steer a successful path through the difficult inter-war years and in 1939, with another war looming, sold Laurent-Perrier to Marie-Louise Lanson de Nonancourt, a member of another great Champagne family - Lanson, who's family still run the company today.
The development and success of the House of Laurent-Perrier has been marked by innovation; Their multi-vintage prestige cuvée - Grand Siécle - was launched in 1959, the unique Ultra Brut and the iconic saignée method rosé followed in 1968.
