Laurent-Perrier Grand Siecle Champagne
A beautiful bottle for a beautiful champagne makes this a wonderful gift idea. Going well beyond rare vintages, Grand Siècle is created choosing not one but three exceptional years which complement each other perfectly. The Laurent-Perrier Grand Siècle ages in the cellars for eight years before it is ready to be savoured. Laurent-Perrier describe the process behind the Grand Siècle as a ‘pursuit of excellence in Champagne; to blend the best with the best to obtain the best’ and it is no idle pursuit. This is a truly prestigious Champagne.
This Grand Siècle from Laurent-Perrier is a blend of Pinot Noir (45%) and Chardonnay (55%), assembled from 11 of the Champagne region’s 17 Grand Cru plots, delivering a complex but delicate wine. Enjoy it to simply mark an occasion, or it also matches well with food, particularly seafood.
About the Brand
The House of Laurent-Perrier was founded in 1812 by André Michel Pierlot and took the name Vve Laurent-Perrier when Mathilde Emilie Perrier, the widow of Eugène Laurent, combined the two family names after she decided to expand the business.
Eugénie Hortense Laurent, her daughter, inherited the House in 1925 and sold it to Marie-Louise Lanson de Nonancourt in 1939. During WWII, Marie-Louise Lanson de Nonancourt ran the business while two of her sons, Maurice and Bernard, joined the French Resistance.
In 1945, Bernard de Nonancourt began an exacting apprenticeship, learning every aspect of winemaking from vine to cellar, before his appointment in October 1948 as Chairman and Chief Executive.
Fired by a passion for champagne, a respect for traditional values and, most importantly, for people, Bernard de Nonancourt inspired Laurent-Perrier with his independent spirit and creative audacity.
He established privileged working relationships with the grape growers and cleverly combined innovation and tradition. He created the signature Laurent-Perrier style of freshness, lightness and elegance and developed a unique range of champagnes which are today exported to more than 160 countries worldwide.
