Producer: Laurent Perrier
In 1881, when Cellar Master Eugène Laurent inherited the Alphonse PierlotChampagne House, he provided it with the essential foundations required to produce great champagnes, namely the houses and land to create a fully-fledged estate. He purchased vines in the very best terroirs of Bouzy, Tours-sur-Marne, and Ambonnay, excavated 800 metres of cellars, and set up a tasting laboratory.
That is how the Domaine Laurent-Perrier (the Estate) was anchored in Tours-sur-Marne. This picturesque village is ideally situated at the crossroads of the three main wine growing areas of the Marne département: the Montagne de Reims, the Vallée de la Marne and the Côte des Blancs. It is also part of the 17 Champagne villages ranking in the prestigious ‘Grand Cru’ area.
Ageing Potential: 15 Years
Laurent-Perrier’s style and personality is defined by its high proportion of Chardonnay. Purity, freshness and elegance – essential characteristics expressed in this champagne – are a good introduction to the spirit of the House.
