Perrier-Jouet is a Champagne producer based in the Epernay region of Champagne. The house was founded in 1811 by Pierre-Nicolas-Marie Perrier-Jouet and owns 266 acres of vineyards. The last two centuries have seen only seven Cellar Masters, preserving the secrets of a unique style. Perrier-Jouet was the first Champagne House to create a dry champagne, which led to the birth of the famous Brut in 1856.
Represented by attractive floral bottles, Perrier-Jouet’s Champagnes are renowned for their elegance and finesse. It produces both vintage and non-vintage cuvee and is known for its prestige label Belle Epoque. The Belle Epoque vintage is the world’s No.3 prestige vintage. In 1902 a Japanese anemone was designed on a Belle Epoque bottle – an icon which would soar to grandeur over the years.
In 2013 the brand unveiled The Enchanting Tree, six participants can have a flute of Perrier-Jouet’s Belle Epoque cuvee from the tree designed by Tord Boontje. At its base, an ice bucket preserves the champagne’s coolness.
