Laurent-Perrier can trace its foundation back to 1812 when Alphonse Pierlot purchased some land in Tours-sur-Marne.Pierlot then willed his company to his cellar master, Eugene Laurent, who ran it with his wife, Mathilde Emilie Perrier. After Eugene died in 1887, his widow, Mathilde, took control, attaching her name to the company – so changing it to Veuve Laurent-Perrier (veuve being the French word for widow). She led the company to great success, producing 50,000 cases of Champagne. Sadly this success was short-lived though due to the outbreak of the First World War. In 1925 Veuve Mathilde died, leaving the company to Eugenie Hortense Laurent. Fourteen years on the company was sold to Mary-Louise Lanson de Nonancourt, who invested everything she had in the company, incredibly keeping it afloat throughout the Second World War. When her younger son Bernard de Nonancourt, returned from the war – his older brother had been killed – his mother began to educate him on every aspect of Champagne. This education paid off because in 1949 Bernard de Nonancourt became the owner of the company and saw it become one of the world’s largest, family-owned Champagne houses. The de Nonancourt family still retains majority ownership of the company to this day.
