Whether the switch up is as modest as a trying out a completely new cuisine or as daring as going to a costume party alone, the best accompaniment for any mould breaking moment is Laurent-Perrier Champagne.

Humans are creatures of habit. Our social settings tend to replicate themselves and we get cosy with the same people, in the same haunts, holding the same drink. Ritual and comfort are important, but occasionally the weekend calls for something a little different.

Whether the switch up is as modest as trying out a completely new cuisine or as daring as going to a costume party alone, the best accompaniment for any mould breaking moment is Laurent-Perrier Champagne. It is a get-together staple and a celebratory must, and will take any event from ordinary to extraordinary.

How are we so sure? Well, it’s in the history. The House of Laurent-Perrier was founded in 1812 by André Michel Pierlot. After Pierlot’s death, he left the company to his loyal cellar master Eugene Laurent who ran it with his wife Mathilde Perrier until his passing. Following his passing, Mathilde combined their surnames and the company took its now famous namesake, Laurent-Perrier. Mathilde’s daughter, Eugénie Hortense Laurent, then went on to sell the House to Marie-Louise Lanson de Nonancourt in 1939.

During the 1940s, Mary’s son Bernard de Nonancourt – who had served as a member of the French Resistance, leading a charge that broke into Hitler's own private wine cellar in Bavaria – began his own love affair with winemaking. He was an independent, creative and audacious man who loved bringing people together. Bernard spent every waking hour learning the intricate facets of the craft and by 1948 was allotted Chief Executive of the House. He prided himself on establishing privileged and genuine relationships with grape growers in France.

Now Laurent-Perrier boasts a spot on the shelves in 160 countries. But perhaps even more impressive is it’s unwavering commitment to maintaining tradition and promoting community.

So, how should you enjoy it?

The freshness and purity of Laurent-Perrier Cuvée Rosé does not mask any aromas. There is a common misconception that rosé Champagnes are all sweet wines but this is definitely not the case for the Cuvée Rosé.
