Laurent-Perrier takes Gold at Chelsea Flower Show

Champagne Laurent-Perrier has again been awarded Gold at this year's RHS Chelsea Flower Show. The gold medal was received by Arne Maynard for his elegant design, which represents the art of fine craftsmanship - the garden is a timeless, ornamental, "gardener's garden" with all elements having been carefully handcrafted.

With a theme inspired by Laurent-Perrier's 200-year heritage of time-honoured methods and reputation for creating pioneering Champagnes, the garden showcases exacting attention to detail.

Plants have been chosen for their colour texture and scent to evoke fond memories, and include a variety of roses not seen on Chelsea Show Gardens in recent years. The dusky pink, burgundy and copper colour palette evokes the iconic Laurent-Perrier Cuvée Rosé.

Speaking of the win, David Hesketh MW, managing director, Champagne Laurent-Perrier UK, commented, "This is a very special year for Laurent-Perrier, as we celebrate our bicentenary. Laurent-Perrier has been handcrafting a fine and diverse range of Champagnes since 1812 and the design perfectly encapsulates the essence of our heritage".

Laurent-Perrier is the official Champagne of the 2012 RHS Chelsea Flower Show and Laurent-Perrier Cuvée Rosé is the Champagne of the 2012 Chelsea Garden this week - the ideal Champagne to welcome summer.
