Discovering Laurent Perrier - Champagne's Largest Female Owned House

The Sip is on a mission to support minority and female owned brands, and this month's box highlight does just that. Sold in over 120 countries worldwide, Laurent-Perrier is one of Champagne’s leading houses and largest family and female owned champagne houses.

This month's Sip box includes a half bottle of Laurent Perrier's finest brut Champagne "La Cuvee". Purity, freshness and elegance – essential characteristics, expressed in this champagne – are a good introduction to the spirit of the House.

The History of Laurent Perrier:

The now-Laurent-Perrier Champagne house was founded in 1812 by a former cask maker named André Michel Pierlot. When he died, Pierlot’s son André inherited the business, but, with no heirs of his own, eventually passed ownership to Eugène Laurent, the house’s cellar master.

Laurent later died in a cellar accident, in 1887, leaving his widow Mathilde Emilie Perrier in charge of the business. Perrier combined her and her late husband’s last names to rename the house Veuve Laurent-Perrier.

The house was later pass to Mathilde's son Bernard, who was a french war hero. The house is now run by Bernard’s two daughters, Stéphanie Meneux de Nonancourt and Alexandra Pereyre de Nonancourt.

In 1999, Laurent-Perrier was listed on the French stock exchange, but the de Nonancourt family retained 57 percent of the shares. 

Great Champagne houses aren't born over night, but have deep history and as you see run by amazing women.
