Bernard de Nonancourt created the Laurent-Perrier style.
To do this, he revived and took over the traditional ways of champagne, but also launched new approaches at both technical and blending level. He created a range of unique wines with their own history and personality. Laurent-Perrier is now celebrated for its style and the consistency of its quality, cuvée after cuvée.
An inimitable savoir-faire
Everything may start in the vineyards but the champagne wine is also made at the Cuverie revise. Blending is the art of champagne, it is the expertise of Laurent-Perrier and its Cellarmaster Michel Fauconnet.
Winemaking means selecting the best juice from the press.
Winemaking means working with the three main Champagne varietals, Chardonnay mostly, Pinot Noir and Meunier.
Winemaking also means choosing the still wines that will go to make up the final composition from the 320 villages in the Champagne AOC area including 17 Grands Crus and 44 Premiers Crus.
Winemaking is to achieve the perfect balance between a base year and reserve wines to recreate the characteristic Laurent-Perrier style each year.
Winemaking also means ageing our Cuvées for long periods so that they are perfectly ready to enjoy as soon as they are released into the market.
