The champagne house Perrier-Jouët was founded in 1811 and crafts elegant, floral wines of rare finesse with a Chardonnay hallmark. Benefiting from exceptional vineyards, Perrier-Jouët is known for the finesse of its wines; the last two centuries have seen only seven Cellar Masters preserving the secrets of a unique style.
Since its creation by Pierre-Nicolas Perrier and his wife Adèle Jouët the House has always favoured an approach combining skilled craftsmanship with a sense of artistry. In 1902 Emile Gallé, one of Art Nouveau’s most celebrated artists, designed a swirl of anemones wreathed in gold for the Perrier-Jouët bottle. Since then, Perrier-Jouët has continued to celebrate the marriage of arts and crafts, calling on renowned artists such as Daniel Arsham, Makoto Azuma and Tord Boontje, to creating unique works, sublime objects and artistic installations that are a fitting showcase for the close relationship between the House and Art Nouveau.
The spiritual home of the House, the Perrier-Jouët Maison Belle Epoque is a place in which enchantment reigns, with over 200 works and unique pieces by the greatest names in Art Nouveau, from Majorelle and Guimard to Lalique and Gallé. It is one of Europe’s largest private collections of the Art Nouveau movement.
