Champagne Laurent-Perrier is a french winery located in the Champagne region. The origin of Champagne Laurent-Perrier dates back to 1812, created by André Michel Pierlot. The names comes from Veuve Laurent-Perrier when Mathilde Emilie Perrier, widow of Eugène Laurent, decided to combine the two family names while she was making the winery.
Eugénie Hortense Laurent, her daughter, inherited the company in 1925 and sold it to Marie-Louise de Nonancourt, in 1939.
In 1939, Marie-Louise de Nonancourt, widow and mother of four children, concerned about their future, acquired the Laurent-Perrier estate.
During the Second World War, her two eldest sons joined the Resistance, and Bernard joined the Abbé Pierre.
In 1945, Bernard de Nonancourt began a demanding apprenticeship in all the stages of the business, from the vineyard to the cellar, before being appointed Chairman and CEO in October 1948 at the age of 28. At that time, the company employed about 20 people and sold 80,000 bottles.
Driven by a passion for champagne, respect for traditional values and above all for people, Bernard de Nonancourt gave Laurent-Perrier independence of spirit and creative audacity.
He established privileged relationships with the winegrowers; under his impetus, Laurent-Perrier, in barely 40 years, became a true innovator in Champagne. He created the Laurent-Perrier style: freshness, finesse, elegance, and developed a unique range of champagnes that are exported worldwide to more than 160 countries.
