The House of Perrier-Jouët was founded in 1811 in Epernay by the union of Pierre-Nicolas Perrier and Rose-Adélaïde Jouët.
A pioneer in the qualitative evolution of the Champagne wines, the House was the first to indicate the year of the vintage on its labels for greater transparency with customers. This is how the selection of the harvests that will or will not enter the production of Champagnes Perrier-Jouët begins in order to always guarantee exceptional quality.
This Oenotheque of great vintages is kept Secreally in the Cellars of the House and the oldest one dates back to 1825.
The search for excellence quickly led to the renown of Champagnes Perrier-Jouët, which were served on the great tables including the Royal courts of Napoléon III and Queen Victoria.
The elegance of the Cuvées echoed and the House decided to affix art nouveau style anemones to their Prestige Cuvée: Belle Epoque, which was moreover selected by Princess Grace of Monaco for the Rose Ball.
The Vineyard is now composed of 65 hectares spread mostly over 5 Crus: Cramant and Avize (Côte des blancs), Mailly (Montagne de Reims), Aÿ and Dizy.
