Champagne Laurent-Perrier was founded in 1812 but the story is really one of modern renaissance. In 1939 Eugénie Laurent sold the House to the de Nonancourt family and in 1948 Madame de Nonancourt passed control to her son Bernard. Full of energy and ideas, Bernard was unafraid to challenge convention and had a modern vision of a champagne style that was lighter on the palate and could be enjoyed any time. He brought innovation and a pioneering spirit to the House, and so the Laurent-Perrier of elegance and freshness was born. Bernard de Nonancourt had prepared his succession for several years, handing over to his daughters Alexandra and Stéphanie who joined the House in 1987 and are now members of the Management Board. Today, the House of Laurent-Perrier is one of the great success stories in Champagne.
In 1998, the quality of Laurent-Perrier’s champagnes was officially recognised when HRH The Prince of Wales awarded Laurent-Perrier his Royal Warrant. The Warrant is only awarded to select products who The Prince of Wales sees as reflecting the best in their categories and these companies must also meet a code of good environmental practice. Laurent-Perrier remains the first and only champagne house to bear his Warrant.
