A really fast Champagne Peer Group Verify (Laurent Perrier, Vranken-Pommery, Lanson BCC)

For the brand new 12 months, considered one of my todos was to verify the opposite two listed Champagne Homes in France, Vranken-Pommery and Lanson BCC.

As I discussed within the unique publish, my major motivation to purchase Laurent Perrier was that it’s identify at all times confirmed up after I regarded up Gerard Perrier.

Utilizing TIKR as a fast comparability instrument, one can see, that the 2 different gamers; Vranken-Pommery and Lanson-BCC commerce at even decrease PEs than Laurent Perrier:


Nonetheless, we are able to additionally see that the opposite gamers are way more indebted that Laurent Perrier. The following desk that I’ve compiled from TIKR numbers exhibits that Laurent Perrier ist each, extra worthwhile advert loads much less indebted than the oher two:

One may argue that the potetnial of Vranken-Pommery may very well be larger in the event that they handle to enhance their margins.

One factor I cannot talk about right here is style. I did a Champagne tasting as soon as and I used to be stunned how completely different completely different manufacturers of Champagne are literally tasting. Nonetheless, style is a really subjective factor and I’m not certain what quantity of Champagne is definitely purchased for style. Myself, I solely drink Champagne very occaionally, perhaps every year so I’m undoubtedly not certified to give you an opinion right here. Even worse, personally, I do really choose an excellent Prosecco if I’d have the selection. A lot better worth for cash.


This was clearly not a deep dive and as talked about, my Laurent Perrier place is barely a small place for me that I personal extra for enjoyable. It’s nonetheless fascinating to see that primarily based on a few KPI’s, Laurent Perrier appears a lot better than the opposite two “pure play” listed Champagne homes. Due to this fact I’ll stick to LAurent Perrier in the meanwhile…
