The inspiration of beauty and art come together in champagne Perrier-Jouët thanks to the shared passion and dedication of Pierre Nicolas Perrier, a cork supplier from a family of winegrowers, and Rose Adèle Jouët, the 19-year-old daughter of a respected calvados producer. Married in 1811, this young couple founded the House of Perrier-Jouët and set about acquiring the most prized vineyards in the Côte des Blancs.
Over 200 years later, Perrier-Jouët is known throughout the world for its incredible line of Champagnes. Since its establishment in the early 19th century, the company has had just seven cellar masters, each trained by their predecessor (the current Chef de Caves is Hervé Deschamps). Each production is limited in volume, and five times throughout the company’s history - in 1879, 1882, 1902, 1908 and 1910 - Perrier-Jouët has decided not to release any bottle due to poor harvests. Perhaps most notably, Perrier-Jouët is recognized for its finest luxury cuveé, Belle Epoque, which comes in an elegant flower bottle originally designed by Emile Gallé in 1902.
Perrier-Jouët made its first shipment of wines to England in 1815. In 1856, in order to satisfy his British clients, Charles Perrier, who succeeded his father, produced the first "dry" champagne, which resulted in the creation of "Brut" champagne.
Passionate about art, the Champagne House was inspired by the work of Emile Gallé, a renowned master of Art Nouveau, and in 1902 entrusted him with the task of creating a unique decoration for its premium magnums. The famous white anemone decoration was then adopted for the well-known Belle Epoque vintage.
There’s an elegant correlation between Perrier-Jouët and Art Nouveau through the alignment of their core values. The first is to be inspired by nature; nature is where champagne starts and it is all about Art Nouveau. Their second is to bring beauty into lives everyday. Finally, they both strive to push boundaries.
Perrier-Jouët owns 65 hectares of vineyards classified as 99.2% on the échelle des crus classification of champagne vineyards, which means that each of the House’s vineyards is classed almost exclusively as Grands Crus.
Since its inception, Perrier-Jouët has only produced small volumes. Successive Cellar Masters have been able to preserve the House’s historic treasures, such as Perrier-Jouët 1825, the oldest champagne vintage currently in existence.
An elegant and refined grape variety, floral and feminine, Chardonnay is Perrier-Jouët’s distinctive signature wine.
Perrier-Jouët is one of the finest Champagne Houses in the world, particularly noted for its Belle Epoque vintage, the world's No.3 prestige vintage. Perrier-Jouët is known for the elegance of its wines. Perrier-Jouët is the first Champagne House to have created a dry champagne, which led to the birth of the famous Brut in 1856.
