History: Champagne Laurent-Perrier was founded in 1812 but the story is really one of modern renaissance. In 1939 the House was sold to the de Nonancourt family & Madame de Nonancourt passed control of the House to her son Bernard in 1948. Bernard had a modern vision of a champagne style that could be enjoyed any time with a cleaner palate. He brought innovation & a pioneering spirit to the House, so the Laurent-Perrier style of elegance & freshness was born. His legacy lives on today through his daughters.
Regional Information: Champagne terroir covers a roughly 34,000 ha of vineyards, each one bringing together a combination of climate, soil & terrain. The production zone AOC was defined & delimited by a law passed in 1927. The terroir has two major features: northerly latitude & dual climate. The subsoil is mainly limestone with the addition of chalk & marl. This subsoil has good drainage & also adds that mineral taste to certain Champagnes. The moderately steep terrain offers perfect exposure to sunlight with added drainage.
Current Vintage: NV
Vinification Details: The general movement towards drier wines, together with the habit of drinking champagne as an aperitif, has popularised the consumption of brut champagnes. However, many wine-lovers still enjoy the sweetness of past pleasures provided by a demi-sec. Harmony is a rounded and delicate demi-sec thanks to a high proportion of Chardonnay and a well-balanced dosage. The dosage blends harmoniously into the wine, bringing both freshness and sweetness to this champagne.
