Once the historic home of generations of the founding family, Maison Belle Epoque in Epernay was meticulously restored to its original Art Nouveau style in 2017. Now, this elegant 18th-century mansion stands as the ultimate testament to Maison Perrier-Jouët’s singular bond with art and nature.
At Maison Perrier-Jouët, the history of champagne began over 200 years ago. The House was founded by two independent-minded free spirits who shared a passion for art and nature – and a bold vision for champagne. The House has stayed true to this founding philosophy of creative freedom and an unconventional observation of nature ever since.
Pierre-Nicolas Perrier and Rose-Adélaïde Jouët shared a love of nature and the arts. She was a cultured young woman from a Norman merchant family; he a masterful vintner and botanist. A year after their wedding, in 1811 they founded Maison Perrier-Jouët: born of their desire to create a Champagne House with a difference.
Maison Perrier-Jouët regularly commissions creative talents for their capacity to express the cultural heritage of the champagne House through the prism of the 21st century, as well as their own unique identity. These exclusive artworks and installations inspired by the House's Art of the Wild and the Art Nouveau movement feature throughout Maison Belle Epoque.
The founders of Maison Perrier-Jouët decided on the Côte des Blancs, in the heart of Champagne's “Golden Triangle”, as an ideal terroir to nurture Chardonnay and cultivate relationships with growers of the finest crus. Today, this is one of the most admired Champagne vineyards, ranked at 99.2% on the Echelle des Crus quality scale, with exceptional parcels in Cramant and Avize.
The Perrier-Jouët Classic collection comprises Perrier-Jouët Blanc de Blancs, Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut and Perrier-Jouët Blason Rosé. These refined champagnes with delicate floral notes epitomise the House’s 200-year expertise in the art of blending. Their timeless elegance is reflected in the bottle's disctinctive slender neck and rounded shoulders.
