Know-how

Perrier-Jouët owns 65 hectares of vineyards classified as 99.2% on the échelle des crus classification of champagne vineyards, meaning they are classed as Grands Crus.
Chardonnay, an elegant and refined grape variety that is floral and feminine, is Perrier-Jouët’s distinctive signature wine. It is also characterised by a high percentage of older vines which are, on average, 23 years old.
Perrier-Jouët only produces small volumes. Successive cellar masters have been able to preserve the House’s historic treasures such as Perrier-Jouët 1825, the oldest champagne vintage currently in existence.

 

History of Perrier-Jouët

1811
1813
1846
1888
1902

Perrier-Jouët is founded by Pierre-Nicolas Perrier and Rose-Adelaïde Jouët. They quickly acquire a site at 28 avenue du Champagne, still home to Perrier-Jouët today.

The founders bought premises in 1813 in Epernay, the French champagne capital, at 28 avenue du champagne, where the company remains to this day.

Charles Perrier, who succeeded his father, produced a “dry” champagne in order to satisfy his British clients, which resulted in the first "Brut" champagne in 1856. He also created the first millesimal vintages. 

In 1888, during an auction at Christie’s, Perrier-Jouët became the most expensive champagne in the world, achieving unprecedented prices with the legendary Perrier-Jouët 1874. Perrier- Jouët wines have been served to Queen Victoria, emperor Napoleon and the royal families of Belgium and Sweden. 

Master glassmaker Emile Gallé, a pioneer of the Art Nouveau movement, creates a bottle decorated with white stylised Japanese anemones. The design was adopted for its Belle Époque cuvée, one of the symbols of Perrier-Jouët.
