The House has a long tradition of golf practice, with the creation of Les Bulles Laurent-Perrier International Tournament. There are many common values between these two worlds: the love and respect of nature and open space, passion, and an epicurean vision of life - such as the pleasure given by tasting a glass of Laurent-Perrier champagne, a true 'vin de plaisir'.”
