Hervé Deschamps, Cellar Master of Maison Perrier-Jouët, received Lifetime Achievement Award
October 2018 - Maison Perrier-Jouët is delighted to announce that Hervé Deschamps was awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award during the Gala Dinner of the CSWWC on October 24th 2018.
Hervé Deschamps arrived at Maison Perrier-Jouët in 1983. A decade later, he became only the seventh cellar master since the House was founded over 200 years ago. As a guardian of the Perrier-Jouët style, he has maintained the floral and intricate character of the House’s cuvées: the non-vintage Classics range, as well as the Belle Epoque vintage collection. For over twenty years, he has shared his passion for champagne all over the world; his influence spreads from the House to French culture itself, a contribution that was officially recognized in 2016 when he was named a Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres. Hervé Deschamps’ blending skills are highly acclaimed. Over the years, he has won nine Gold Medals, two Best in Class Awards and a trophy for his Perrier-Jouët cuvées at the CSWWC.
