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 vintner 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.
The founders’ passion for art, nature, and champagne has been passed down through the generations. Their son Charles Perrier, a botanist like his father, took over the House in 1848. The family philosophy of creative freedom and an unconventional observation of nature is intrinsic to the history of champagne. These values shape Maison Perrier-Jouët to this day.
