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 wine merchant 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.
