Founded in 1812, the Laurent-Perrier Champagne House experienced its golden age from 1948, thanks to the dynamism of Bernard de Nonancourt. Under the impetus of this visionary businessman, the house distinguished itself by producing vintages that reflected its values of excellence and innovation.
Since its origins, the house has built its identity around Chardonnay. Through the freshness and finesse that it brings to the blend, this grape variety is the hallmark of this Champagne name.
Laurent-Perrier's avant-garde approach is reflected in Grand Siècle and its multi-millilitre blends, its Ultra Brut with its "zero dosage" style and its Cuvée Rosé, the first rosé champagne in this category. These so-called "breakthrough" cuvées, each of which is an event, mark a new page in the history of Laurent Perrier and its quest for excellence, for which it is internationally renowned, through their originality.
The values cherished by Bernard de Nonancourt find their quintessence in the Laurent-Perrier cuvées, unanimously recognised by connoisseurs.
The Cuvée Grand Siècle is made from a selection of 11 of 17 Champagne Grands Crus. The Cuvée Grand Siècle brings together prestigious crus from the Côte des Blancs with Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Avize, Cramant and Oger and from the Montagne de Reims with the Grands Crus of Ambonnay, Bouzy, Verzy, Mailly and Tours-sur-Marne.
Grand Siècle Itération by Laurent-Perrier is a prestige cuvée based on the blend and not on the vintage. Laurent-Perrier takes blending requirements ever further and believes that it is possible to recreate the perfect oenological year, tone that would bring together the ideal balance between its different sensory components.
The sparkling Robe Lumière is a gown of light that illuminates the contours of the bottle of this Grand Siècle Itération 25 by Laurent-Perrier with its silver reflections.
